About Special Needs Teacher...
Postgraduate degrees in Special Needs Teacher Training equip graduates with the skills to develop, monitor and improve educational opportunities for pupils or students with learning difficulties or disabilities.
Initial Teacher Training (ITT) courses such as the UK PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) and shorter Postgraduate Diploma and Certificate courses are typical for this field.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree, and a minimum Grade C in English, Maths and Science.
From nursery school to primary school, secondary to college, higher education to lifelong learning, these courses will equip you with the skills to disseminate skills and knowledge to individuals facing additional learning challenges.
You will become familiar with techniques and methodologies specifically designed to assist student with Special Educational Needs (SEN), undertaking placements to increase your vocational experience and awareness.
As well as methodologies for teaching, you will also explore curriculum development and regulation, and assess policy on current special needs education practice.
The skills attained from these courses are highly applicable to many areas. Alongside traditional routes in teaching, your experience would make you an ideal candidate for agencies helping to train or consult mainstream schools and teachers. You might also explore roles within children’s centres and childcare environments.
