1. Advanced training materials for teaching pupils with SEND
These materials consist of 5 specialist modules and a resource library for teaching pupils with SEND in mainstream schools.
The advanced needs training materials are designed to support teachers in mainstream schools who want to gain specialist skills for teaching pupils with:
- autism spectrum disorders
- dyslexia or specific learning difficulties
- speech, language and communication needs
- behavioural, emotional and social difficulties
- moderate learning difficulties
2. Complex needs training materials for teaching pupils with SEND
The complex needs training materials have been developed for use by any audience with an interest in teaching children and young people with:
- severe learning difficulties
- profound and multiple learning difficulties
- complex learning difficulties and disabilities
There are 16 modules and a study planner tool to help you determine your needs.
The modules are spread across 4 study levels. This is to make sure they cater for teachers with varying expertise – trainee teachers, teaching assistants and anyone with an interest in SEND. They are designed to:
- improve teachers’ knowledge, skills and understanding
- help school staff to raise achievement for pupils
- introduce trainees or mainstream school teachers to the benefits of teaching pupils with severe, profound and multiple, and complex learning difficulties
