principles of support for learning

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by ragpicker, Feb 27, 2011.

  1. I take it this was your 'feedback'. I think they were probably referring to EPSEN ( Effective Provision for Special Educational Needs) 1994. This document talks about needing to consider the following: differentiation; individualisation; adaptation; enhancement and elaboration.
    It doesn't sound like particularly helpful feedback, more like someone was trying to impress you. I think that for an ASfL position you'd want to be well up on the most recent Code of Practice - the revised 2010 one, GIRFEC and how this connects to ASfL policies and practice and the process of Staged Intervention in your LA - then be able to talk about these in the context of CfE. Crucially you need to be able to discuss this in terms of practice at the level of the child , how would you support the child effectively and how would you be part of a collaborative/ consultative group involving the child, parents, teachers and other professional.
     
  2. The 5 principles are from EPSEN originally- a Learning Support teacher has to fulfil various roles: Co-operative teaching, Consultancy, Direct Tuition, Specialist services,
    Staff Development.
