This course is an exciting opportunity for Educational Professionals to come together to learn more about a range of common special educational needs (SEN). The course is suited to a wide range of educational professionals, especially those in mainstream education, who would benefit from acquiring a basic overview of and introduction to SEN. This is a practical, professional development course rather than an in-depth Masters module. It may therefore be ideal for those whose initial training did not include SEN in detail, or those who feel they need a refresher course. FIRST is open to all education professionals.  Students from previous years have included teachers (nursery, primary and post primary), classrooms assistants, parents, voluntary sector workers, museum assistants, early year’s professionals and youth workers.

Students can opt to attend individual sessions or all sessions gaining a Certificate of Attendance or complete a short reflective assignment, and gain a Certificate of Attainment.
