Diabetes Teacher Training Seminars

Diabetes NSW & ACT is pleased to announce the roll out of our Teacher Training Seminars for staff in schools and early childhood settings.

Teacher and schools staff require current health information to assist and ensure that the student living with diabetes at school participates to their fullest potential. Some students may require additional support from school staff to manage their diabetes.

The one-day seminar offers teachers and support staff the opportunity to expand their knowledge and become more confident in supporting and facilitating the day to day school experience of children with type 1 diabetes in their care.

Sessions will include information about diabetes management in school age children, and practical workshops covering a variety of specialised topics in more detail including monitoring, pumps, camps, and excursions.
