    No, but you do become 'deskilled'. Of course, you gain other skills. Any time out of mainstream means you're out of the loop in some ways and that can make it harder to get back in. A year isn't a big deal but if you are out for longer, you are becoming more expensive and will then be up against teachers who have more relevant classroom experience, evidence of value added etc so it's a bit of a risk if you are looking for a job where there is a lot of competition.

    <u>As with all generic guidance it depends </u>
    Depends on phase, expertise and above all what the local employment situation is like. Some schools do look for that background in SEN particularly with an eye to training future SENCOs
    One huge plus is that induction is completed
