Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

The NUT believes that all children and young people with SEN or disabilities should have the chance to reach their full potential in the classroom and at their school. They should also be supported to make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training.

Fundamental changes to SEND provision outlined in the Children and Families’ Bill and the new Code of Practice will have significant impacts on the work of SENCOs and those working in the SEND field. The NUT is running a two day residential SEND conference that will give SENCOs and those responsible for SEND policy in schools and colleges a chance to listen to the latest policy developments as well as the opportunity to share best practice in a supportive and comfortable environment.

Evidence underpinning this approach

All our courses are delivered by experts in their field and the various ideas, theories, techniques and strategies are founded in educational research.

How users/participants can evaluate success

Teachers can match up their progress in the classroom against their memo to me (what they aim to action from this course at their school). Another copy of this will be sent to all teachers 7-8 weeks after the course with form inviting them to assess/analyse implementation and learning so far and plans how to take things forward. This is for personal as well as professional development.

Follow-up activities and support

Group feedback during the course is circulated to participants and they are made aware of new research or developments in that particular field of education (that could be taken further, i.e. professional enquiry and/or university accreditation).


Workshops include:

  • The local offer – a LA perspective
  • Co working with parents
  • Achievement for all
  • Changing funding arrangements
  • Post 16 LLDD issues
  • Resolving disputes – changes to the Law
