Managing Current Developments in SEN and Inclusion: Developing Confidence in New Teachers
Richards, Gill
Management in Education, v24 n3 p107-110 Jul 2010
Developments in special and inclusive education have lead to increasing challenges for teachers. Initial Teacher Education has struggled to keep pace with these developments and equip all newly qualified teachers with the skills required to meet the needs of children with SEN. This paper reflects upon recent national initiatives designed to increase student teachers' skills and confidence through a specialised placement and the Training and Development Agency's "SEN and/or Disabilities Training Toolkit". It considers the implications for managers of ITE programmes as they deliver these initiatives within a curriculum of competing priorities.
