Is there a better way to get training
for Special Educational Needs?

The Virtual SEND Conference is a 21st-century solution. Designed to support schools and professionals, it  is both affordable and easily accessible without reducing quality.

A Virtual SEND Conference is a real conference with a big difference… you attend it online from where you are! We have taken this concept and created SEND focused conferences to help the whole education sector get high-quality CPD. We have the best speakers from across the country talking about a range of topics. Then we build a schedule that has something for every school and setting.

This can be accessed on the day or at anytime after. You never have to miss a conference again!

“It was informative and made accessing training from abroad really easy. I also appreciate that I will be able to access the lectures again.”

Phillippa Miller, Trainee SENCO

Great training for SENCOs, Senior Leaders and all staff around SEN


The Virtual SEND Conference is a great way to get CPD around SEND. The conference is run by B Squared, a company that has been working within the Special Educational Needs sector for over 25 years. The conference covers a wide range of areas within SEND. What makes this conference different is that it is accessed across the internet. We run the conference for schools twice a year, but you don’t have to watch it on the day, you can use the videos throughout the year as part of INSET days. The access is for the whole school. Our last conference had over 4,000 views on the day and the feedback has been amazing.

You can buy tickets for future events or past events, as the videos are always available. The cost of the conferences for schools is £60 and this covers the entire school, not just the SENCO.


“The speakers were very interesting, the session lengths were just right and the video links were clearly visible and audible.”

Diane Nelson, Woodley School and College

“Initially I was a bit wary that it would be very biased towards your product, but the fact that it was very objective and focused on relevant issues was a real plus for me. I would definitely attend future events. Thank you.”

Melanie Appleyard, Teacher/SENCO, Canon Burrows Primary School
