Essential C21st Teaching Skills


A toolkit of practical and highly effective SEN strategies for the classroom
About this course

Understanding different types of Special Educational Needs (Learning & Living differences as I like to call them) can be both challenging and time consuming. Getting the teaching, learning and support is crucial. This course will demonstrate practical ways to provide both 'challenging' and 'accessible' learning opportunities for pupils with SEN. These will include pupils with autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysphasia, ADHD/ADD and emotional, social and behavioural needs. The course is suitable for all teachers, whether you are newly qualified, experienced or support staff.

Delegates will explore a range of differentiation techniques and develop strategies for promoting learning specific to the needs of individual pupils. You will also explore the importance and effectiveness of assessment in order to promote maximum attainment for the whole class.




Course Outcomes:
  • Develop your understanding of the different types of Special Educational Needs
  • Implement appropriate strategies to support SEN - in and out of the classroom
  • Develop effective relationships with teaching colleagues and parents of SEN
  • Be creative and thoughtful with a wide variety of teaching and learning to meet SEN
  • Know how digital technology can support SEN
