nasen launches Early Years SENCO Twitter Chat

News - 1 July 2020

nasen is proud to announce that it has recently secured DfE funding to deliver a series of ten Early Years SENCO themed Twitter chats.

Following on from the hugely successful nasen Chat LIVE (nasen's popular bi-weekly twitter chat), nasen will now be launching the Early Years SENCO themed Twitter chats, starting July 7th, from 7pm until 8pm. These new and exciting Early Years chats will run across ten consecutive weeks and will be a great opportunity for educational professionals to participate in a variety of pertinent topics.

Each chat will feature nasen's own in-house education team, as well as special guests from the Early Years sector, who will bring a depth of knowledge and understanding to each topic and assist in answering all of the valuable questions that each participant may have. nasen is especially delighted to announce that the first special guest joining them on July 7th will be Dr Helen Curran, Senior Lecturer in Education: SEN, at Bath Spa University. Helen is the Award Leader for the MA in Inclusive Education and the National Award for SENCo.

nasen Chat LIVE has proven to be a welcoming platform for discussion for users with a broad range of experience and backgrounds. Anyone with an interest in the Early Years sector is encouraged to join nasen and participate in a friendly and helpful discussion. To make sure you don't miss out, simply make note of the following nasen hashtags: #nasenChatLIVE and #EYSENCOCHAT and remember to sign in to Twitter from 7pm on July 7th.
