About Trainer Billy O’Neill
Billy O’ Neill is an Accredited Trainer for Professor Reuven Feuerstein’s International Centre for the Enhancement of Learning Potential (ICELP) in Jerusalem, Israel and is the Director of the Feuerstein Authorised Training Centre in Scotland.
Billy was Depute Headteacher at a school for students with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. He has taught in mainstream schools, special schools and residential schools. He introduced Feuerstein’s Instrumental Enrichment programme (IE) and Learning Propensity Assessment Device (LPAD) to his school in 1992 and 1996 respectively - which led to staff in special schools, support bases and mainstream schools in authorities across Scotland being actively involved in training and practice using IE and LPAD. In 1994 he piloted IE in his school.
(G. Head and W. O’Neill. 1999. Introducing Feuerstein’s Instrumental Enrichment in a school for children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Support for Learning. British Journal of Learning Support Volume 14 No.3:122-128).
Following intensive research, training and piloting of Feuerstein’s theory and methodology he decided to place the theory and methodology of Feuerstein at the centre of his school’s philosophy and to integrate the principles and practices of mediated learning experience into the curriculum. He teaches and assesses students, supervises and trains staff and is regularly invited to lecture at schools, conferences and universities throughout Scotland. His pioneering work was nominated for a COSLA Excellence Award in Education in 2002/3.
