The Continuing Professional Development training sessions on Special Educational Needs and Disability have been created to make the classroom the most inclusive environment possible for students.
What can you expect?
Week 1: Introduction to SEND and how you can best support as a Teaching Assistant.
Week 2: Disciplinary Literacy- How English underpins everything and should be taught across every lesson.
Week 3: Disciplinary Numeracy- How Maths underpins everything and should be taught across every lesson.
Week 4: Making reasonable adjustments in the Inclusive Classroom. How to support quality first teaching using evidenced based teaching strategies.
SENDSCOPE provides tuition and training in an alternative school setting to year 6, 7 and 8 at their classroom based in SFX College in Woolton to support neuro-diverse young people across Liverpool.
Introduced by SupplyWell’s teacher partner Dylan Williams, with the main training provided by the founders of SENDSCOPE, Natalie Walsh and Jackie Bebbington.
Natalie and Jackie both began their careers as Primary School Teachers before moving into secondary Teaching where they had a lot of experience working with SEND students. From here they decided to take the plunge and begin SENDSCOPE cope to improve the lives of those on the SEND Register.
Now they hold their training sessions in order to create awareness amongst Teachers and Teaching Assistants so that they can make reasonable adjustments for their students.
SupplyWell is planning on offering these courses to our teaching assistants at various points throughout the year. Speak with our team to find out more!
SENDSCOPE Training sessions have been so insightful and it is great to hear from two teachers who have so much experience and passion for making the classroom a more inclusive place for all.
It has covered a lot of ground, including how to incorporate Literacy and Numeracy across all lessons in order to create a solid foundation to build upon.
I will carry the knowledge I have learnt forward into my career both as a Teaching Assistant and a Teacher.Jenny, student teacher
