Flying lessons, music and more for children and young people with vision impairment in Northern Ireland
Thursday, 2 July 2015
Would the children and young people you work with benefit from boosting their confidence and skills?
RNIB Northern Ireland’s Realise project offers one-to-one tuition for children and young people with vision impairment between 8 and 20 years old.
The project, which is funded by the Big Lottery Fund NI through its Empowering Young People programme, provides tuition in a variety of activities including swimming, music, ICT and flying lessons.
Realise aims to build children and young people’s confidence and equip them with the skills to transition between:
Primary and post primary education: one-to-one tuition in extra curricular activities; taster sessions in accessible technology.
Post primary and third level education: one-to-one careers support; one-to-one ICT support; confidence-building programme; participation in the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Leaving education and moving into employment: one-to-one careers support; one-to-one support in assistive technology; confidence-building programme; participation in the Duke of Edinburgh Award; structured work placements.
