I am a primary school teacher with 15 year's experience. I'd love to move away from whole class teaching and work as a Learning support Teacher. Another interest would be becoming a SENCO with some responsibility for teaching. The trouble is, most posts that I have seen advertised seem to want someone with experience. Now I do have some experience of Special Needs, as I am currently on a TDA funded dyslexia training course. (For anyone who knows this field, the qualification I wil get is equivalent to OCR level 5.) However, I still don't feel that this will be sufficient experience to help me get a job in this field. So...how do you become an experienced SEN teacher when there don't seem to be any obvious training routes to become one? I have looked at one or two MA courses, but I'm not sure if this is the best way in. Any advice?
