A TEACHER from Eastwood was one of the first people in the county to complete a new course aimed at helping pupils with special needs.

Karen Robinson who works at Priory Roman Catholic Primary School was awarded by Nottinghamshire County Council for completing the National Award for Special Educational Needs.

As part of the course Ms Robinson visited various schools to see how they address the needs of pupils.

The new masters level qualification is now mandatory for new teachers.
