Holly Durrant, Founder of KUE
Hello, welcome to KUE.
My journey started when I was in secondary school completing my two-weeks work experience which was at my local SEN school. I was immediately taken by the positivity, resilience and the joy in helping others to achieve, and so I've been working with people with disabilities ever since.
I have had the privilege to get to know and support many different people to live their lives the way they want; in teaching assistant roles, support worker roles and more recently in behaviour practitioner and training roles.
Alongside my work and various employments, I completed a BSc in Psychology and Social Anthropology and later a MSc in Neuroscience.
I have completed numerous train the trainer courses with BILD and the Tizard Centre.
Knowledge, Understanding, Empowerment
At KUE, our ethos combines a person-centred approach with the frameworks of Positive Behaviour Support, Active Support and SPELL.
These frameworks all have quality of life as their bedrock, which is the main aim of all our training packages.
We want to give you the right knowledge so you can understand your person, help them to be safe and happy, and empower them to reach their full potential.
Our training packages are all values-led and promote Quality of Life
Positive Behaviour Support
An ethical approach to supporting people who's behaviours can challenge - focusing on being proactive and preventative
Initially devised with people with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD) this approach promotes participation and engagement of all aspects of life.
Designed by the National Autistic Society, this course is aimed at understanding autism, reducing anxiety and responding positively to the needs of autistic people.
