Complex Scenarios

Working through these case studies will help developing teachers practice noticing, problem solving, reflection, challenge of assumptions, understanding and ultimately develop the expertise to be adaptive in action.

They have been designed by school-based practitioners, in partnership with HEIs and SCITTs to provide a structured and detailed narrative through which trainees can work with a mentor, to deepen knowledge of the barriers to curriculum access experienced by learners with special needs and working with expert teachers to identify need and adopt effective instructional approaches.

A range of ages and phases are covered. Mentors and trainees are encouraged to ‘transpose’ the scenarios to a relevant key stage to expand the resource and embed new learning. These collaborative learning opportunities support new teachers to question, explain, and elaborate their thoughts and co-construct solutions.

We recommend working through the exemplars ‘Noticing’ and ‘Rashid’, before moving on to the other complex scenarios, which are designed for you to notice and plan adaptive strategies for each learner.
