UK VI curriculum framework and resource hub

This new project aims to establish a UK specialist VI curriculum framework and resource hub for children and young people with vision impairment (VI).

The VI Curriculum Framework will clarify and define the elements of specialist skill development interventions and best practice support that are essential for children and young people with vision impairment.

It will also enable parents to understand the pathways of support for their child and the services involved in providing that support to align provision within an agreed nationwide context.

Online resource hub on RNIB Bookshare

The VI Curriculum Framework will sit alongside the academic curriculum which all children are entitled to. It will be accompanied by the development of an online resource hub on the RNIB Bookshare website to support the sharing of professional resources used by Qualified Teachers of children with Vision Impairment (QTVIs) and Habilitation Specialists across the sector.

This is a joint project with:

  • Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB)
  • The professional association of the Vision Impairment Education Workforce (VIEW)
