It has been developed to link with your day to day working practice – it encourages you to develop a resource or professional artefact (for example, a novel intervention; an assessment tool; a lesson plan template or a learning resource) which can be used in your setting.

This course is suitable for those in a non-teaching role (TA, nursery nurse, LSA etc). If you work in as a teacher in a school or FE setting, with or without QTS (Qualified Teacher Status), you may be interested in our Recognised Teacher of SEND course.
