There are many different training options available for roles supporting children and young people with sensory impairment. It is less clear just what training certain roles should have, how courses relate to each other and whether they follow on from each other?

NatSIP has published a revised document containing three sets of training pathways (HI, VI and MSI) to help answer just these sorts of questions and illustrate the types of training available for specific roles working in the field of sensory impairment.

The document has been updated for 2018 to include changes to providers and courses. We would like to thank all colleagues who have contributed to the content.

The document is available:

Training and courses change over time and we aim to keep this document up to date. If you become aware of a course which should be included or have any other questions about the pathway please contact us or leave feedback.
