Course Overview

Children with special education needs (SEN) are those who find it more challenging to learn things compared to students of the same age. This is a result of a wide range of difficulties and disabilities, including physical, behavioural, sensory, medical, communication, cognition and learning. Due to their condition, children with SEN require special educational support and provision in order to meet their academic needs. This makes the role of the SEN teaching assistant all the more important.

In the classroom, the SEN teaching assistant not only serves as a support for the main teacher. This professional is also relied upon to perform a host of tasks, from caring for and encouraging children to participate in curricular and social activities to carrying out administrative duties. If you are keen to work with children with SEN and would like to help in their education, you can learn more about the profession in this SEN Teaching Assistant Course.

Designed as a basic reference for individuals in a starting teaching assistant capacity, or for anyone who would like to take on this role, the course gives emphasis on developing the knowledge and key skills needed to perform the job with efficacy. It provides information on SEN, important functions of the SEN teaching assistant, and various learning styles and difficulties of students.
