But many young people and infants with psychical or mental challenges, have further problems that sometimes prevent them from reaching their full potential.

If this sounds like the profession that you would like to become involved in, we can help you take significant steps towards procuring this role or a similar position. Enrol in our unique SEN Teaching combined course, and you can gain the knowledge base to enter this profession. This program is fully endorsed by ABC Awards – a regulated organisation that ensures professional and reputable certification which will give you a significant advantage when applying for any kind of teaching or SEN related role in the education sector.

By working through these specialist online modules, you’ll quickly learn the requirements and responsibilities needed to become a professional SEN Teacher. You’ll also be enlightened of the regulatory requirements for SEN teaching and the process of a SEND tribunal. The importance of leadership and communication is also covered, and you’ll become aware of just how SEN symptoms can inhibit the learning abilities of a child. You’ll also learn how to monitor the educational progress of a SEN student, and how to use teamwork to ensure support is consistent. With this knowledge base, you will be prepared to take on the education system and support vulnerable children through their most formative years.
