Attention All Primary NQTs for 2016/2017 - 15-Sep-2016

Attention NQTs (primary) for 2016/2017
Individual Education Planning for Pupils with Special Educational Needs (Primary)
A pilot workshop developed by the NIPT and SESS to support teacher planning in special educational settings
What areas will the workshop cover?
● Individualised Education Planning (IEP) rationale
● IEP content and process
● IEP writing and reviewing
The workshop will include input on Individual Education Plans for pupils with special educational needs. It will highlight the on-line and face-to-face supports available from NIPT and SESS. A practical activity-based approach underpins the workshop approach.
How does the workshop fit with the current workshop ‘Planning and Preparation’ (Primary)?
The workshop will complement the current workshop ‘Planning and Preparation’ (Primary) provided as part of the National Induction Workshop Programme for NQTs in schools not offering the Droichead process. The central focus of the ‘Planning and Preparation (Primary) is support for the NQT in the mainstream class. The new workshop will extend and build on this existing workshop by providing support to NQTs with special educational planning.
For NQTs in schools not offering the Droichead process, will attendance at the workshop
be accredited towards the 20 hour workshop condition attached to my Teaching Council
May I attend the workshop if I’m not currently teaching any children with special
educational needs?
May I attend the workshop if I’m currently teaching in a school offering the Droichead
Yes. In keeping with your obligations under Strand B of the national Droichead policy, you may
decide to attend the workshop as your one other professional learning activity. This workshop may
be useful as a response to your professional learning needs, in consultation with your school’s
Droichead Professional Support Team.
Where will the workshop be provided?
For 2016/2017, the workshop will be piloted by the NIPT and Special Education Support Service
(SESS). Workshops will be provided in nine education centres – see details below. SESS advisors will
facilitate the workshops. Register for the workshop by contacting the education centre you wish to
Why was the workshop developed?
The pilot workshop is collaboration between NIPT and SESS in response to NQT feedback about the
need for planning guidance to support children’s learning in special education contexts.
Is this the first year of this pilot workshop?
No. The workshop was first piloted in seven education centres last year. NQT feedback informed the
2016/2017 workshop.
