nasen Recognised Teacher/Practitioner of SEND

Make a visable commitment to the principles of inclusion

Whilst every teacher/practitioner is indeed a teacher/practitioner of SEND and has professional responsibilities to meet individual needs, nasen recognises that some teacher/practitioner develop their expertise further, have a particular interest in this field and demonstrate unwavering commitment to supporting children and young people with SEND, and supporting colleagues in driving improvement in their schools and beyond.

Achieving this award with a professional body for SEND evidences your commitment to effectively meeting the needs of your learners. Doing so can also help your school to prioritise and drive improvement in SEND. If your school has strong partnerships with parents, promotes shared decision-making with children and young people and their parents, and is committed to early identification and intervention, your teacher/practitioner are likely to be great champions already of the standard which nasen wants to recognise.
