Building on the success of the Education and Training Foundation’s (ETF) training programmes on supporting learners with autism, dyslexia and hearing loss, reference guides on these subjects are now available on the SEND specialist site.
The guides provide key learning from our training programmes and include top tips for adapting communication, teaching strategies and environment to enable learners to thrive. They also provide further links to a wide range of resources and CPD training to help staff to increase their knowledge and confidence to embed skills effectively into the support they offer.
To find out more about our awareness courses, you can now view the taster sessions recordings. We are hoping to offer more face-to-face training from April 2019 and you can register your interest in these by visiting the ETF booking system.
Gavin Lumsden, Director of Education & Student Experience, talks to us about what to expect from his breakout session at SET24. He also offers advice for educators wanting to maximise their learners’ potential.
More than 27,000 practitioners have been awarded Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status since it was first introduced in 2008. As QTLS status marks its fifteenth anniversary, applications for the current cohort remain open, closing on 30 November.
