The School Suite free access course is made up of two modules, Pedagogy and Practice and Understanding SEND, each with 6 hours of content.
The Pedagogy and Practice module was developed for new and early career teachers and aligned to the ECF and the Teacher Standards to increase understanding of the way children learn. Informed by the science of learning, the course design models effective pedagogy in its structure.
The Understanding SEND module addresses the lack of understanding of the impact of SEN on learning and is aligned to the SEND Code of Practice.
School closures and the response to COVID-19 reduced teacher access to essential professional development activities. Best Practice Network identified these modules to meet the greatest area of need and made them freely available to the schools’ sector.
