NatSIP survey findings – Recruiting QTSIs with the Mandatory Qualification

Posted in News

Update from NatSIP

“In a workshop with the Department for Education in September 2023, a number of heads of specialist education services for children with sensory impairment identified concerns around the supply of qualified teachers of children with sensory impairment and challenges around recruitment.

In late 2023, NatSIP invited responses to an on-line survey from heads of services and specialist provision, to explore and better understand and evidence these issues and concerns. The survey received 44 responses from across the UK.

This results document describes the survey, and provides a summary of its findings and results.”
