Training with disabilities and other needs

We want inspiring teachers in the classroom working with impressionable young minds and disabilities or additional needs should not prevent this. If you have something to offer in the classroom, then we want to hear from you.

In terms of support, we offer a range of options and each is specifically tailored to meet the needs of the individual:

*Accessibility within the training schools is assessed and addressed. Within the SCITT, there is access to a lift, low-level thresholds, ramps and other features to increase accessibility

*Adjustments can be made on placements - this may be in terms of the workload, support offered, access to support systems and services

*We identify the needs of all trainees, very early and offer ongoing support

*All trainees complete an Occupational Health Assessment, which identifies strategies that would support them in role

*We have Lead Mentors, whose role is to work across all schools to offer bespoke support to trainees or their mentors. This allows trainees to fully engage with the course and that any challenges are addressed early and fully.

*Wellbeing sessions are interspersed throughout the training year, keeping this a priority.

*All trainees complete sessions on 'Managing Workload', so as to prepare them for a long and healthy career in teaching

*Each of our courses are tailor-made to meet the needs of our trainees. This allows us the flexibilty to make adjustments to ensure accessibility for all.
