Event description

Description

Suitable for new and aspiring SENCos, members of SLT or anyone that line manages a SENCo in a mainstream setting, this course covers the new SEND code of practice 2015 and looks at the strategic role that SENCos now play in school.

If the SENCO is not on SLT then they will certainly be a middle-leader. This course will set out the roles and responsibilities of the manager of SEND in a school and offer support and advice to enable them to carry out their role in an effective strategic way.

There is less than one year remaining before the SEND reforms must be fully implemented. This is putting a great deal of pressure on both schools and local authorities and SENCOs have to manage a greater workload to ensure the school is legal and compliant. At the same time our schools are experiencing budgetary constraints, an increase in the number of pupils with complex SEND and a workforce that has not been trained to meet their needs. During the course of the day delegates will have an opportunity to discuss the current educational climate in light of support for pupils with SEND and gain further knowledge and skills to manage some of these challenges back in school.

Objectives of this course:

  • To offer an overview of the strategic leadership of SEND
  • To examine the different roles and responsibilities of SEND managers and those of the local authority
  • To review the school workforce and their effective deployment in supporting pupils with SEND
  • To consider the next steps for the management of SEND in schools
  • To offer professional dialogue relating to the role of the SENCO

Please note that the start time shown allows for registration and refreshments, the course programme will be sent to each delegate via the email supplied with the final information.
