20 SES 10, Arts Based Educational Inquiry
Parallel Paper Session
There are still fewer teachers with disabilities teaching in UK classrooms than would be representative of the population as a whole. Some teachesr with disabilities still encounter ignorance and prejudice during their time in teacher education. This paper explores these experiences from the perspective of a group of beginning teachers studying at a University in the North of England. As well as illuminating the experiences of this group of teachers early in their career the narratives offer a challenge to those who work in teacher education. This is the challenge to see such a group of teachers as offering a wide range of skills and expertise that may not be available within the non disabled population.
