The course "SEN & Phonics with Primary Teaching" provides a comprehensive understanding of Special Education Needs (SEN) and Phonics education within the context of primary teaching. Divided into three major components, Phonics, SEN, and Primary Teaching, the course equips participants with essential knowledge and skills to address diverse learning needs.

Courses We are Offering in This Package:

  • SEN Teaching Level 7
  • Phonics Level 5
  • Primary Teaching Level 5

In the Phonics segment, learners delve into fundamental aspects, from the introduction to phonics education to the application of methodologies like Jolly Phonics, early phonics teaching, involving parents and carers, and effective record-keeping. Special attention is given to meeting individual needs and addressing cognitive approaches in dyslexia. Additionally, modules explore phonics for deaf children and teaching higher levels of phonics.

The SEN modules offer an overview of special education needs, covering support mechanisms, teaching methodologies, and addressing specific challenges related to communication, cognition, social, emotional, and sensory or physical needs. The course also guides learners on effective collaboration, working in partnership to create inclusive learning environments.

The Primary Teaching section delves into the UK's primary education landscape, responsibilities, qualifications, and skills required. It covers initial teacher training, the significance of early years in development, teaching techniques, and primary subjects such as English, Mathematics, Science, Design, and Technology.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
