nasen Awards

All the latest information and announcements for the annual nasen Awards celebratory ceremony and dinner 

This year we celebrated the achievements across the SEND community on Friday 18th October at the Waldorf Hilton Hotel at our prestigious black-tie event.

The nasen awards seek to recognise and share the best practice which, ultimately, really benefits children and young people with special and additional educational needs and disabilities (SEND). To have this impact, there are some common features of practice which we would expect to see evidenced across the categories. These features are:

  • inclusive leadership and governance which would be visible at every tier in an organisation
  • a collaborative approach to working
  • productive engagement with the full community of the organisation
  • innovation
  • a commitment to sharing effective practice beyond own organisation

Importantly, for every award there is an expectation that the work being recognised has improved outcomes for children or young people with SEND and that individual or organisation has gone above and beyond expected practice.

Those shortlisted were invited to the black-tie ceremony which will included a three course dinner and drinks.
