Understanding SEND training

As part of the SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) Reforms Programme, Education colleagues delivered a rolling programme of free training sessions throughout 2017 called Understanding SEND.  

Who was the training for?

The training was available to all professionals (apart from teachers who access separate training) working within health, social care, education and the voluntary sector who come into contact with children and young people who may have SEND. 

What did the training cover?

The sessions described in detail the way in which children and young people with SEND have their needs identified and met and:

  • provided an overview of the Local Offer
  • informed participants of patterns and trends in SEND
  • provided a clear understanding of SEND and the support available (mythbusting)
