Provision and outcomes for learners with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) are being improved through a range of training opportunities and other support for leaders, managers and practitioners.
Now in its second year, the SEND Workforce Development Programme will increase the awareness, capacity and expertise in the post-16 education sector to deliver high-quality provision and support. In addition to training courses, collaborative practice cluster groups to improve delivery of Study Programmes will be established, free online modules on IAG, case studies of effective practice, and useful webinars and briefing papers will be provided.
A refreshed Needs Analysis identifying the key priorities and objectives for the Programme throughout 2017/18 has been compiled by SQW.
