SEND Schools’ Workforce Launched

A SEND Schools’ Workforce programme of work has been launched by the government.  The programme will be delivered by he Whole School SEND consortium, led by nasen, in partnership with University College London.  The aim of the new, two-year, programme of work is to embed SEND into school led approaches to School Improvement in order to equip the workforce to deliver high quality teaching across all types of SEND.  The programme of work will: drive education institutions to prioritise SEND; equip schools to identify and meet their training needs in relation to SEND; build the specialist workforce and identify and respond to any gaps in the training and resources available to schools.  SEND regional leaders and deputy leaders will be appointed in each region, to help bring together the expertise and knowledge in the area and to share good practice, latest research and resources in order to ensure all pupils with SEND are supported effectively.

Hugh Steele is the new Regional SEND Leader for the North of England. Follow him @WSSNorth or email
