Dorin Park - now part of the Strategic Leadership Team

WTSA's partnership with Dorin Park SEN School and Specialist College develops enhanced opportunities within our Initial Teacher Training programmes to undertake SEND training and enrichment opportunities.

Dorin Park SEN School and Specialist College is an established WTSA partner and School Direct placement school. With a shared desire to support and develop highly skilled teachers we have devised enhanced programmes of SEND ITT training to compliment our existing routes.

With all teaching professionals needing a strong understanding of SEN practice, strategies and provision this partnership will provide opportunities for each of our trainees to enhance their skills and knowledge. It will also offer additional opportunities for those candidates who wish to explore a teaching career within SEN settings, with opportunities to undertake placements and enrichment placements at Dorin Park.

Our current cohort of trainees are benefiting from training sessions in the likes of: Categories of Need; Visual Impairment; SEN pathways; Communication and Language strategies; ASD; Inclusive Curriculums; etc. This offer of SEND enhancements will continue to grow and develop over future years and we are excited about the benefits this will bring each of our trainees.
