The professional association of the vision impairment education workforce

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. 

Survey of VI Education workforceVIEW is involved in a wide range of activities designed to support our members and promote excellence in the education of children and young people with vision impairment. To help shape the development of VIEW, and to ensure we represent your interests – particularly in the current climate of ongoing cuts to SEN budgets in schools and LA education services – we are seeking input through our survey from everyone working with children and young people with VI, whether you are a member of VIEW or not.


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!

RNIB/VIEW factsheet: The Role of the QTVI (Word, 150KB) – share with colleagues, schools and parents to help them understand the role of QTVI as essential for improving outcomes for visually impaired children and young people.
