Additional Support for Learning (Visual Impairment)
Students build on existing skills, gaining knowledge and attitudes that they can apply in cooperation with colleagues, professionals, families and carers of learners, as well as the learners themselves; on a more technical level. Students become familiar with the effects of a range of ocular and cerebral visual impairments and be able to apply structured observation or standardised tests to identify the thresholds of functional vision or blindness of pupils and plan and teach programmes appropriately.
The minimum entry requirement is a UK 2.1 Honours degree, or its international equivalent in a relevant discipline; alternatively, applicants may be considered on the basis of employment or relevant educational experience; applicants should normally be registered with the General Teaching Council for Scotland, or Teachers of Further Education, for further education teachers.
