We have been working with both Creative services and Vision Impairment: Education and Welfare (VIEW) to produce a short film illustrating the role of qualified teachers of children and young people with vision impairment (QTVIs).
Most teaching approaches take vision for granted, so making sure that children with visual difficulties achieve their full educational potential presents significant challenges. In order to understand and address these challenges, schools need specialist advice from QTVIs. VIEW is the professional association for the vision impairment education workforce.
The film features QTVIs from Norfolk sensory support service talking about their work. Its purpose is to strengthen recruitment of future QTVIs, to help those about to start training to learn about the role, and to show schools and parents how QTVIs can help them.
The film is available at https://youtu.be/8tXWrc2KD5M and will shortly be added to the VIEW and RNIB websites.
