Universal SEND Services

The Universal SEND Services programme is funded by the Department for Education (DfE) aims to deliver our ambition of improving preperation for adulthood from the earliest years all the way through education, in a seamless joined up way. 


This programme is facilitated by Whole School SEND, working in partnership with the Education and Training Foundation (EEF) and Autism Education Trust (AET)

Assistive Technology

nasen is committed to helping practitioners use technology to reduce or remove barriers to learning - as such, we teamed up with Microlink PC (UK) last year to deliver an AT Training Pilot with funding from the Department for Education.

This year, we're building on that success and delivering a new pilot, training 150 maintained mainstream schools in England through free-to-access 60-minute training sessions, delivered once a month by Microlink PC (UK) between March and July.

EEF Trial of the SEND Review in Mainstream Secondary Schools

The SEND Review is a structured, peer-to-peer evaluation of SEND provision across a school. The aim of the programme is to improve provision for pupils with SEND in mainstream schools by helping schools to evaluate the effectiveness of their provision, and then implement a bespoke action plan to target areas of priority and drive improvement.
