TEACH INCLUSIVELY AND CHANGE LIVES FOR THE BETTER. With greater understanding has come increased awareness of needs and their effects on families and communities. A career in special educational needs has often been seen as the most rewarding within the public sector. The journey has traditionally started later in a Teacher's career but now there are new ways to train as an SEND Teacher - Graduate Universe can support this journey starting today.

COMPASS POINTS. Gaining SEND experience is essential to beginning this career destination. Understanding and gaining practical knowledge is key to the long term development of your skill set. Experience could initially be gained voluntarily, but finding a long term position working within SEND will be much more beneficial for your long term prospects. Becoming an SEND Teacher will mean honing your experiences towards your chosen area of expertise.


SEND Teachers can specialise in teaching Autism(ASD), SEMH(Social & Emotional Mental Health), PMLD/MLD(Profound/Moderate Learning Difficulties) or Hearing/Visual Impairments. Each require a unique skill set/qualifications and often many years of experience to achieve higher levels of competency. Training to teach through a PGCE before moving across to a special needs setting has been a traditional route for many SEND Teachers. It is now possible, with specific SEND experience, to train with an SEN specialism or at a Special School where you can gain QTS. The essential requirements along side passion and resilience, are a good level of degree and at least 12-18 months specific SEND experience in a school, special school or Alternative Provision. Graduate Universe can support this journey starting today.
