Davies, John Dwyfor; Lee, John
Journal of In-service Education, v27 n2 p261-74 2001
Critiques the British Teacher Training Agency's views on the knowledge and skills required by Special Educational Needs Coordinators (SENCOs), claiming that the Code of Practice embodies a technicist model for teaching and neglects the affective elements required, especially for SENCOs. The paper argues for an approach which incorporates a concept of personal professional development. (SM)
