Warrington Teaching School Alliance offers PGCE Primary with SEN (5-11)which includes enhanced opportunities within our Initial Teacher Training programmes to undertake SEND training and enrichment opportunities.

With a desire to support and develop highly skilled teachers, we have devised an enhanced programme 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.

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.
