Becoming a Better Teacher
In an article originally published in 'Special' in May 2016, Professor Des Hewitt from Warwick University highlights the benefits for trainee teachers of learning in a special school community. He considers what can be learned from this model, and why teacher education establishments should consider using special schools in their teacher education programmes.
Professor Hewitt talks in detail about the model used by the University of Warwick primary education course, and the SEND specialism which is available. These courses are making new teachers much more confident in their understanding of inclusive practice and how their future pupils will benefit from it, whether in mainstream or special schools.
If you are a trainee teacher, teacher educator or a Headteacher or SENCo on the lookout for good practice, this article provides interesting reading.
