Support for Education Settings

The most important in-school factors in improving outcomes are effective teaching, including from teaching assistants, teachers and early years practitioners, and strong leadership of SEND, from SENCOs, Headteachers, nursery managers, governors and trustees.

Our menu of Continuing Professional Development provides all professionals with the opportunity to learn, develop and improve, whether you are new to the profession, have many years of experience, or are a leader in education.
