Description

Aimed at mainstream ECTs teaching pupils with SEND, learn principles that can transform your thinking, daily practice, and pupil outcomes!

The percentage of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) in mainstream schools grows every year.

Every Early Career Teacher (ECT) needs to know how to meet the needs of complex and vulnerable learners in class. This series of CPD webinars is designed to extend ECT learning during the ECF modules, to support them to reflect deeper on their own practice, and to start to develop their increasingly necessary SEND specialism.

Further sessions are planned for 26 November,17 February,17 March,5 May, 23 June, these will be aligned to the ECF modules once the learning outcomes have been published.
