Wohl Campus, Kisharon Noé School, a Loftus family learning centre opened its doors, virtually, to give student teachers a unique insight into special needs education.

Nine teachers training at the London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS) had a packed day of remote learning which opened in refurbished premises in Hendon.

The secondary teachers sat in on lessons and had sessions on communication and autism. They also learnt tried and tested techniques for managing challenging behaviour in children with learning disabilities.

The training day, the first run remotely by the school, impressed trainees. Several with special needs children in the schools where they have placements, pledged to put new skills into practice.

Deputy Headteacher, Lyna Panas said, “The trainees benefit from our expertise in communicating and supporting pupils with special educational needs in mainstream. We also give the trainees a small taste of what Kisharon Noé School does to support our community and our pupils.”

A training day for primary school trainees will be run at the campus later this month.
