Every Teacher is a Teacher of SEND
This is an exciting opportunity for teachers from primary, secondary and special schools to access a programme of webinars, which will be delivered by highly experienced SEND education experts and professionals from a range of educational backgrounds. Providing teachers with a clearer understanding of what is meant by the term Special Educational Needs and not only their statutory obligations as teachers, but also aimed at building their confidence in how to meet the various special educational needs of the children they teach within the everyday context of their classrooms.
These webinars will be an opportunity for teachers to reflect on and explore the components that support the inclusive classroom – meaningful curriculum sequencing and delivery; inclusive pedagogy; an enabling learning environment; embedded universal approaches; adaptive expertise.
Throughout the webinars the graduated approach (assess-plan-do-review) and its application within the classroom setting will be shown as a platinum thread.
Each webinar will focus on a particular aspect of Special Educational Needs, which when experienced with the others on offer will empower practitioners to feel fully able to support students in their classrooms.
