Special Schools Placement

Special School Extended Placement

We have recognised that some Trainees have the skills and desire to teach within a Special School Setting or wish to work towards becoming an SEN Coordinator within a mainstream school. We have therefore created a 12 week extended placement within a Special School or CAIRB ( Communication and Interactive Resource Base for children on the Autistic Spectrum) during the Spring Term for a small number of selected Trainees.

We have devised a connected centre based and school based course with specialist teachers from Special Schools. This will involve special training on a variety of special needs, total communication and behaviour management. It is expected that Trainees entering these placements will already have experience within a Special School setting.

If this option is of interest to you, please contact us. We would be delighted to hear from you.
