Kenyon, George Edward (1991) The implication for pupils with special educational needs of the introduction of the technical and vocational educational initiative in comprehensive schools. Masters thesis, Durham University.
This investigation was undertaken to examine the effect of T.V.E.I. on pupils with special educational needs. The features selected for particular investigation were:-a) The organisational structure of T.V.E.I. b) Teaching style/attitude, group work, problem solving. c) In-service provision. d) Existing school provision for S.E.N.'s pupils. e) The role of the tutor in T.V.E.I. These five main concerns were examined through the literature and an empirical study. This study is in two parts. a) a small scale pilot study was undertaken at a group 6(s) special school for pupils with moderate learning difficulties which was involved in T.V.E.I. b) a major study which took place at a small 11-18 comprehensive, which was also within the T.V.E.I. scheme. The results obtained have enabled conclusions to be made and issues raised concerning the benefits, if any, of including special educational needs pupils within a T.V.E.I. scheme. The main issue which has emerged during the course of this research has been the importance of the criteria by which T.V.E.I. is implemented and taught for these pupils. These aspects merit consideration for, as T.V.E.I. extension is now with us, all pupils with special educational needs will find themselves within a T.V.E.I. scheme.
