The Department is currently consulting on all aspects of the proposals to strengthen Qualified Teacher Status. As part of this, we have proposed introducing an early career content framework for newly qualified teachers, and have suggested that special educational needs and disabilities could be a key element of this framework. The consultation is currently open and we will aim to publish a response by summer 2018.
