    Hi guys, 

    Just had a read through this thread. 

     

    Just looking for some advice really. 

    Im currently doing a masters in SEND 

    I have a PGCE primary and worked for 5 years in schools. I will finish my masters in jan and was hoping to be assessed as an SEN teacher. Do I stand a chance at getting the PR visa?

     

    thanks

    What advice are you seeking? File your application and you will eventually receive a decision just like any other applicant. You always have a "chance"...

    Well basically it says to be classed as an SEN teacher you need to have 45 days observed teaching in your profession by a uni. I have the required amount during my PGCE but that’s not specialised in SEN, however I’m doing a masters in SEN and I won’t have the ‘observed teaching’ for my SEN degree. 

    Unless they will accept my Sen degree, so I’m really unsure. 

    Just wondering if anyone has been in the same boat 

     

    Thanks

    Yes indeed the observed teaching requirement is a question mark but I guess the thing is if you have any doubts can't you get those 45 days you need in your current program? If not, then you are back to my initial response which is just apply and hope they accept whatever you do have for observed teaching.

    The real issue that you face is that to be classed as an SEN teacher you must have the supervised teaching.

    It sounds like you already meet the requirements for a primary teacher, however, to apply for a visa and be successfully assessed as an SEN teacher is highly doubtful.

    Your Masters is by the sound of it is purely theoretical and without the practical component that is needed.

    I just don’t think there is a way of getting this 45 days then :-( 

    I’m checking on like PGCE top ups, but I don’t think England do anything like this :-/

    blah!! How frustrating

    Visit the individual websites for each university you are interested. All of the information is posted online for what you need to submit with your application. As far as priority, I guess you better apply soon if you are looking for February 2018 assuming they still accept your application. If not, you apply for the next session. It is not complicated.
