Teacher training often focuses on how to support learners with specific
learning needs, but there is also a growing number of teacher trainees
who need support during their Initial Teacher Training year and beyond to
enable them to engage effectively with their learners. This study focuses on
key methods used to support teacher trainees, and strategies developed
to enable them to engage effectively with their learners to ensure both
the teacher trainee and their pupils make effective progress. This is an area
of development that requires more work, but it is important that thought
should be given to teacher trainees and their needs in a similar way to that
of the pupils they look after to ensure that they can continue to make the
wonderful contributions they are able to.
