REVIEW OF THE TRAINING INITIATIVE:

In the framework of the Law 170/2010 USRV has launched in collaboration with the Faculty of Education, University of Padua, a specialisation training course addressed to teachers with a permanent contract and working in CTI (Centri Territoriali per l’Integrazione) and Veneto schools.
The course lasted one year (2011) and was aimed at training teachers to obtain the qualification in “Qualified teacher in learning disability”.
The course has a special importance since USRV is working to improve the quality of the training offer and, in particular, to enhance school networks.
The course was aimed at providing specific knowledge and competencies in the following areas:

 learning disability: analysis of educational needs and actions regarding the difficulty in reading and understanding, writing, making calculations and problem solving, studying;
 specific learning disorders: diagnosis and treatment with regard to dyslexia, writing disorders, dyscalculia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), visual-spatial problems;
 designing within the new institutional framework established by the Act 170/10 and 16/10.
The course included 325 hours:

1. face-to-face lessons (54 hours)
2. laboratory activities (18 hours)
3. distance learning (8 hours)
4. internship and team work (25 +25 hours)
5. individual study (170 hours)
6. final report on a topic chosen by the trainee (Project Work) (25 hours).

In order to participate the teacher working in the primary education had to hold a high school diploma or a degree in Primary Education; the degree was needed for secondary school teachers.
Only teachers with a permanent contract could access to the course. For more information, please visit USRV website
