Embrace the opportunity to work with children with special needs, by becoming a teaching assistant – a key part of a positive, well-led classroom that is a happy environment in which a child can flourish. Dealing with special needs can be a challenge – for the child, their parents and keyworkers who care for them – but special needs shouldn’t mean a child can’t be included in learning and can’t feel equal to their peers. Sign up to this course package and you will be able to recognise the special educational needs and disabilities that some children cope with, helping them to effectively manage their needs and reach their full potential.
Four Different Courses,in One
By signing up to this in-depth package, specifically designed to suit teaching assistants (or aspiring ones) who wish to work with SEN, you will be able to work through four of our comprehensive courses, which cover ‘teaching assistant’, ‘recognising and supporting children with special educational needs’, ‘Asperger’s syndrome’ and ‘child development’. By the end of the course, you will have a clear and concise understanding of all of these areas, and will have covered many of the basics required to be an effective SEN teaching assistant.
