Course description

Effective PSHE education can enable pupils with special needs to access the broader curriculum while helping them to keep themselves safe and prepared for life and work. The course will critically analyse the importance of PSHE education for learners with SEND and consider strategies for delivery. 

We will cover how to use and adapt our PSHE Education Planning Framework for Pupils with SEND, using case studies from other schools, and signpost to suitable SEND resources you can use.

This course includes

  • Essential pre-course reading to prepare you for the training session
  • Three hours of high quality, interactive training led by members of our Subject Specialist team, the leading national experts in PSHE education
  • A wealth of useful ideas, resources and materials to support design and delivery of PSHE for pupils with SEND in both mainstream and special school settings
