One of the issue highlighted through the corona virus related lock down was the importance of educational support services and in particular the work of Special Needs Assistant for children and adults with special needs and disabilities and their families. The role of the Special Needs Assistant or Care Assistant in disability support services is crucial in enhancing the quality of life and educational outcomes for thousands of individuals in Ireland yet the education and training programmes for this role often fall far short of the skills and knowledge required for the challenges involved. SCFE has worked closely with service providers such as pre-schools, schools and disability services to develop a course that ensures that learners are fully equipped with the skills, knowledge and professional capacity to provide the highest standard of support to children and adults with special needs. The SCFE Inclusive Education and Training with Disability Studies and Special Needs Assisting course is a QQI Level 6 award which prepares learners to work in a range of settings including pre-schools, primary and post primary schools and in public and private health services and community settings. Alternatively, learners can start their educational journey with QQI Level 5 Early Childhood Care and Education with Special Needs Assisting. This course primarily focus on young children and will give learners the option of working as an SNA in preschools and primary schools.
