We have received very positive feedback in particular, to the Inclusive Learning Approaches and would like to draw your attention to the weblink where you can download the documents or they can be ordered through DCSF publications:

The 'Inclusive Learning Approaches for literacy, language, numeracy and ICT'  is a companion document to Addressing literacy, language, numeracy and ICT needs in education and training: 'Defining the minimum core of teachers' knowledge, understanding and personal skills.' The minimum core document details the knowledge, understanding and personal skills in English, Mathematics and ICT that teachers need to undertake their professional role. The Inclusive Learning Approaches can support teacher training teams in planning learning programmes that include the minimum core. It will support teacher trainers in modelling effective inclusive practice in relation to literacy, language, numeracy and ICT.
