The professional association for the vision impairment education workforce

VIEW is a leading voice representing the interests of children and young people with VI, championing best practice, and promoting the specialist VI education sector. We exist to help you support the education, development and opportunities of children with vision impairment.

Whether you are a QTVI or in training, a VI teaching assistant or Habilitation specialist, or work in a role supporting children and young people with vision impairment, by joining VIEW you become a member of the professional membership association for QTVIs, and the wider VI education workforce. Join us today.


VIEW has joined up with RNIB to make a short YouTube film illustrating the role of the QTVI. 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!
