Breathe Magic Trainer

We offer placements for Occupational Therapy Students (in any year of study) to become Magic Trainers on our award-winning Breathe Magic Intensive Therapy Programme.

The Breathe Magic programme is truly life-changing. By taking on the role of a Magic Trainer you will be part of the journey; creating life-long change for young people with hemiplegia. You’ll also gain invaluable hands-on experience to support your next steps after graduation.

Magic Trainers work alongside our Clinical Leads to offer support and encouragement to the young people taking part in Breathe Magic Intensive Therapy Programme. The programme consists of a 10-day intensive Magic camp where participants learn to become young magicians and practice bimanual activities needed in daily life. This includes tying shoelaces, cutting up food, pouring drinks and doing up zips and buttons.

With the support of the incredibly skilled and helpful Breathe team, and of course the young magicians, I’ve gained additional practical skills and experience beyond my university studies, which I hope will contribute to both my personal and academic development.

Not only is this a fun and unique programme to be a part of; it’s a great way to gain paediatric neurology experience. Our Clinical Leads will be on hand to support you along the way and answer any questions. If you complete ten days on camp, we will provide references, a certificate of participation for your CPD file and half a day additional training from our lead Occupational Therapist.
