You told us that there aren’t enough courses aimed specifically at staff who work within special schools. We’ve remedied that with our wide range of special school courses which cover everything from teaching outstanding lessons and raising achievement to developing the role of subject leaders and a range of subject specific courses.

In addition to these courses, we also have a series of courses suitable for colleagues working with SEND students in a range of settings which you’ll find useful including courses to support behaviour management, courses to develop communication skills and courses aimed at helping you to stretch and challenge learners with a variety of special needs.

We know that it’s difficult to take time away from school, but we’re confident that you’ll find your time is well spent. Our special school courses are all led by colleagues who have extensive experience of working with young people with special needs and disabilities, so by the end of the day your questions will be answered and you’ll return to school brimming with ideas.
