Supporting Children in Kent with Special Educational Needs and Disability

About us - The VI Team

The VI team consists of 11 Specialist Teachers for Visual Impairment who are all qualified and experienced teachers.   7 of these teachers hold the additional Mandatory Qualification for Visual Impairment.  4 are teachers who are undertaking the Mandatory Qualification for VI and work under the supervision of a teacher who hold the MQ.

The Specialist Teachers for Visual Impairment are based in districts which comprise Kent but work flexibly across boundaries to meet the needs of the children and young people with visual impairment.  The majority of the teachers are on full time contracts but some work on a part-time basis.

Working alongside the ST VI are three Early Years Visual Impairment Play Specialists and two VI Technical Support Specialists.
