- We are a leading voice representing the interests of children and young people with VI, championing best practice, and promoting the specialist VI education sector. The more members we have the stronger that voice will be.
- Please join us, and encourage your colleagues to join if they have not already done so. Through our membership programme we raise funds to continue our work.
VIEW has joined up with RNIB to make a short YouTube film illustrating the role of the QTVI. The film features three members of Norfolk’s Virtual School for Sensory Support talking about their work. Its purpose is to strengthen recruitment of future QTVIs and to enable those about to start training to learn about the role, as well as showing schools and parents how QTVIs can help them. Please make use of it in your work!
