Education and Training

We know that education and training professionals play a fundamental role in the life of the individual living with epilepsy as they take the lifelong learning journey towards achieving their potential. Whether a child care worker, primary or secondary school teacher, community tutor, trainer or university lecturer your role in supporting a person on their lifelong learning journey is pivotal to their success. Our education and training programs will enable you to develop the skills and knowledge required to provide appropriate supports in the learning environment while also developing a better understanding of the impacts of living with epilepsy on learning.

Where the individual living with epilepsy has been prescribed emergency medication you will also require training in the administration of emergency medication.

Epilepsy Smart Schools

An Epilepsy Smart School embeds inclusive, safe and educationally sound practices for primary, secondary and special school students living with epilepsy. If you work in this space we encourage you to visit our Epilepsy Smart School website and talk to your colleagues about how your school can become an Epilepsy Smart School.

Clear communication between the child/young person with epilepsy, the family and the teachers is crucial in supporting successful transitions throughout the learning years.

The Epilepsy Foundation can work with your child’s school, train staff and raise awareness of epilepsy in general and more specifically understanding on how best to support your child. This is a vital step in ensuring that your child achieves his/her academic potential and develops valuable peer relationships that will build a strong foundation for a successful future.
