The Vision Support Service team provides education and training sessions to teachers and support staff during school INSETs, outlining the implications of the various aspects of vision impairment on access to learning.

We offer training to specific groups of teachers and support staff who work with a particular child, helping them understand their student’s vision impairment and how this impacts on their access to the curriculum. This will include advice and suggestions given on technology, modification of work, making the environment safe and accessible, adjusting teaching techniques and recommendations for suitable equipment to enhance inclusion.

Ongoing training is given to individual support staff to make best use of available technology and equipment, to help them modify teaching materials effectively, and to help them learn Braille alongside the child or young person they are supporting where needed.
