SEN Modular Training Programme
This programme will unpick the five recommendations in this report.
Special educational needs in mainstream schools – A modular CPD programme
The EEF Guidance report offers five evidence-based recommendations to support pupils with SEND, providing a starting point for schools to review their current approach and practical ideas they can implement. The report comes from a review of the best available international research and consultations with teachers and other experts.The overriding message from the report is a positive one. It is tempting to talk about the challenge of SEND as a specific and distinct issue. Yet, far from creating new programmes, the evidence tells us that teachers should instead prioritise familiar but powerful strategies, like scaffolding and explicit instruction, to support their pupils with SEND. This means understanding the needs of individual pupils and weaving specific approaches into everyday, high quality classroom teaching — being inclusive by design not as an afterthought.
This online programme is made up of 6 modules and will involve synchronous (live) workshops, gap tasks, and opportunities for personalised coaching to support effective implementation.
Module 1: Reflecting on current practices
Modules 2 – 5: Exploring the evidence- unpicking the 5 recommendations
Module 6: Implementation planning
