With the new SEND Code of Practice now in place (since September 2014) and fewer pupils fulfilling the criteria for additional support, are your classroom teachers ready to take responsibility for meeting the needs of all their pupils? These ready-made training materials can be used by the SENCO or training leader to equip new teachers with the knowledge, skills and understanding to provide quality first teaching to SEND pupils.
This training pack is particularly suitable for organisations involved in school-based initial teacher training though also appropriate for use with more experienced staff. It will:
support high-quality inclusive teaching rather than reactive SEND provision
explore approaches for overcoming barriers to learning such as speech and language needs, autistic spectrum disorders or sensory and physical disabilities
provide trainees with practical strategies to give them confidence in the classroom
enable school-based training leaders to equip new teachers with the skills they need to support 21st century learners.
