We’re the professional membership association for QTVIs (Qualified Teachers of children and young people with vision impairment), and the workforce supporting children and young people with vision impairment, including Heads of Service, Learning Support/Teaching Assistants or Technicians (Specialist VI), mobility and habilitation specialists, retired and trainee QTVIs.
VIEW is a registered charity, and we exist to help you support the education, development and opportunities of the children with vision impairment that you work with. We champion best practice, and promote the specialist VI education sector – representing the interests of children and young people with vision impairment. Through our membership programme we raise funds to continue our work, so please become a member today.
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!
