VIEW recognises the need for QTVIs to access training and guidance to ensure that they have the confidence and up-to-date skills to support the teaching of literacy through braille.
We are now making available single units of online braille literacy training, drawn from material used in VIEW and RNIB’s full course: “The Effective Teaching of Literacy through Braille.” These single units are available on a variety of subjects.
• Each unit costs £50 which gives you access to structured online learning materials and a blank portfolio to complete and take away at the end of the course.
External assessment of a portfolio can be requested at an additional cost of £50.
• Choose from: Maths, Science, Foreign languages, braille music, late beginners, learners with additional needs, learners with an additional language. Individual unit descriptions are available in the application pack.
• Course materials: these are drawn from existing material used in VIEW’s full course: ‘The Effective Teaching of Literacy through Braille’. The full course is available annually between January and July and leads to a VIEW certificate.
• Developed by: RNIB and VIEW in partnership with the Department for Education and the National Sensory Impairment Partnership, and written by specialists in braille literacy.
