In recognition of the unique and independent role played by NatSIP, we hold a contract with the DfE to provide support for sensory impairment.
During 2017 – 18 there are two key objectives as part of this contract
- To enhance the capacity and knowledge base of the front line workforce
- To develop the capacity of the SI sector
As part of the front line workforce programme NatSIP has committed to the development of face-to-face training and specialist support materials for SENCOs. Through the promotion of best practice in the SI field NatSIP will provide SENCOs with the knowledge required to address the needs of SI learners in the classroom.
We looking for strategic national partners who will be able to support the programme by offering opportunities for NatSIP Associates to deliver an awareness raising session as part of an existing SENCO qualification provider course or through presentations at SENCO forums and events.
During the session, there will be an opportunity to contribute to the development of a training package, the focus of which will be supporting SENCOs in identifying and addressing the needs of SI children and young people and informing them of the specialist support available.
