Prior to qualifying as primary teacher I was a TA and supported pupils with SEN in mainstream schools. I gained valuable experience working with S & L therapists, OT and other professionals to implement intervention and support programs. Whilst working on supply, I volunteered one day per week at a local Special School. I have Early Years experience and have also attended a Portage Training Workshop. I am now in my fourth year of permanent teaching role in an inner city school with high levels of additional needs and EAL but I would really love to move into teaching in a Special School. I am seeking advice on how best to make this transition. Are there any additional qualifications or experience I should aim to gain? I am a latecomer to the teaching profession and thus have a limited time to achieve my ambition. Many thanks.
