Leading science in a special educational needs setting has been developed to empower practioners working in SEND settings to discover the potential of the science curriculum for students.
The course will provide a framework for participants to evaluate their current provision, identify their own next steps and improve their own leadership skills. It will provide a wealth of practical activities which are accessible for children with a range of additional needs and explores how working scientifically can be planned for throughout the curriculum for pupils with SEND to improve outcomes for students.
You will be able to:
- understand the role of the science coordinator in a SEND setting and to develop leadership skills
- develop an awareness of the role of science in improving outcomes for all children, particularly those with an additional need
- develop a clear idea of what makes an effective evaluation and monitoring plan to be able to lead science in your school
- understand what makes an effective activity to support children as learners, especially those with SEND, through working scientifically
