Moving from Mainstream to SET with Annette Ormond

Moving from Mainstream to SET with Annette Ormond


Moving from the mainstream classroom to a Special Education Teaching role can bring with it some apprehension and worry.

In this course, we will look at the role of the SET and examine the continuum of support. We will also outline how to use the continuum to meet the individual needs of students with additional needs.

Learning outcomes:

Participants will be enabled to:

  • Learn the key differences between working in a mainstream classroom and SET
  • Understand planning and preparation in a SET role
  • Learn about using the continuum of support to plan for key needs students have

Presenter Biography- Annette Ormond, Grad Dip. SEN, M.Ed ASN.

I am a primary teacher working in schools for the past eighteen years. I am a passionate lifelong learner and am currently completing a Masters in Educational Leadership through Waterford Institute of Technology and studying towards a degree in psychology with the Open University. I have completed many different courses in the area of educating students with Special Educational Needs and I have significant and varied experience in the area also. I believe wholeheartedly in the difference we can make in the lives of people with many additional needs through our understanding and our knowledge. I worked with the Dyslexia Association of Ireland for eight years and was awarded the IATSE Testimonial and Award for excellence in Support Teaching in 2017 when studying in University College Dublin and the Louise Madigan Bursary Award for research in education in 2021.
