Physiotherapy student

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by liufegi, Mar 11, 2012.

  1. Hello, I'm student from Lithuania, and now I'm studying special education, with specialization in physiotherapy in education. After ending my studies, I'm thinking about going to the UK to work as special educaton teacher. How many work places, in the UK, are for special educaton teachers? Are physiotherapy teachers popular in the UK?

  3. Where I work (residential special), we have a Physiotherapy team on site. 2 of them deal with students in the school up to the age of 19 and 1 deals with college students who are above the age of 19. I'm not quite sure how it works in the average day special school but I'm sure some others on here would be able to help you in that regard.

    <font face="Times New Roman">Do you want to work in a school as a physiotherapist or as a teacher? They are different professions here. Special schools have the same rules as mainstream schools.</font><font face="Times New Roman">To work as a physiotherapist check this website for information on how to get your qualification recognised here.</font>http://www.workgateways.com/job-physiotherapy.html#regulations<font size="3"> </font><font face="Times New Roman"> </font> To work as a teacher here (in England) you need to be qualified to work as a teacher in an EU country. If you qualified as a teacher in Lithuania you should be able to apply for a teaching job here and your physiotherapy experience should stand you in good stead if you can get an interview. The rules are different in Scotland and Wales.
