Description This course will cover the latest information on the SEND reforms and how to embed them in your early years, school or college setting.  As well as outlining the changes and the timetable for implementation, the legal implications will be covered along with how to meet the expectations of Ofsted.  The change of culture that the changes represent will be discussed and practical ideas given for how to make sure the views, wishes and aspirations of children, young people and their families are placed at the centre of the decision-making process.  The various funding streams for SEND and how personal budgets are being used will be included and examples given of effective and innovative practice

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

This course is suitable for those in leadership positions across early years provision, all types of schools, and post-16 settings. It will be useful for those working in local authorities, school governors and business managers, as well as SENCOs and those who have some responsibility for children and young people with SEND. By the end of the course delegates will: be clear about what else they need to do when updating their SEND practice, including what it means for every teacher to be a teacher of SEND; the implications of switching to SEND support; and their role as statements are replaced by EHC plans; be given practical illustrations of how to increase the involvement of children, young people and their families; have time to share any concerns about meeting the needs of those who have significant health needs, including mental health, in addition to those with SEND

Follow-up activities and support The provider has not supplied this information

This course is run by Larraine Cooper who works with senior and middle management to develop a range of business performance management and costing skills to support the delivery of quality services over a medium-term timeframe. She has worked with HE institutions, FE colleges, schools and local authorities. She works with schools through the NAHT financial courses and on a 1:1 consultancy basis, focusing entirely on finance and business aspects of school management serving educational outcomes by resourcing School Development Plan priorities. Delegates need to familiarise themselves with the SEND code of practice (January 2015); be ready to share ideas on how they, or their settings, have changed their practice following the SEND reforms and have in mind any queries they wish to raise regarding the increased expectations on schools.

This course does not have any pre-booked dates available. Please contact the provider directly to arrange this training.
