If you are one of our PGCE students, then you will spend one of your three placements in an environment working with children with special educational needs (SEN). So if you have an interest in this area, you might like to take a look at a report which was published yesterday by Ofsted. How Well New Teachers are Prepared to Teach Pupils with Learning Difficulties and/or Disabilities examines what factors are required to ensure that training in this area is effective, and how such training can be best delivered.
Further to Monday's post, Teacher's TV has produced a 15 minute programme on the new EYFS, which explains the new framework and how it could affect professionals working in this area. Click here to watch the programme.
