The Virtual SEND Conference

This conference is different from all the others. It is a 21st century solution designed to support schools and professionals that is both affordable and easily accessible without reducing quality.

It facilitates the sharing of knowledge within settings and supports teachers with useable downloads. Useful content will be at a classroom level, with tips from like-minded professionals, for the everyday challenges SENCOs and teachers face in helping children with SEND. The virtual SEND conference is aimed at removing the barriers that schools face regarding costs and time issues in attending physical conferences.

At the beginning of the year we started hosting FREE webinars aimed at teachers to help keep schools up-to-date with changing Government guidelines surrounding children with SEND and offering free training and advice on assessment within schools. With school budgets being squeezed and teachers’ workloads increasing, these webinars have been phenomenally successful with our customers and led to a logical conclusion to host a virtual conference where we can expand topics such as the results of the 'National SENCO Workload Survey 2018' to further support all teachers at classroom level.

We also asked our teacher customers which topics are the most important to them. Answers ranged from how to show progress and attainment to managing early interventions and combating lack of funds. We aim to address these topics and more throughout the day.

What will the conference cover?

We asked professionals which topics they need support with.  Our survey resulted in the following:

  • 33% of teachers said they want to learn how to meet the individual needs of students to show progress and attainment.
  • 9% cited learning how to identify and support children with dyslexia.
  • 9% wanted to learn how to implement and manage interventions to better support students.
  • 8% asked for strategies to combat lack of funding and staff.

the remaining answers covered a range of topics.

 

Confirmed speakers include: Lorraine Petersen OBE, Jane Friswell and Hannah Moloney 

Topics will include:

  • The SENCO workload survey

  • The new inspection framework for SEND

  • SEND policy and practice update

  • Supporting pupils with dyslexia & ASD in mainstream settings

There will be 3 sessions in the morning and 6 sessions in the afternoon. The programme will fit within the school day with a keynote speaker, Q&A, online networking opportunities, and streamed afternoon sessions - you can pick the session most relevant to you.

"This Virtual SEND Conference will bring together experts in the field of SEND offering support and advice on a number of topics and delegates will be able to access and participate from their own setting and or home. Hopefully, this will be the first of many on-line opportunities bringing the SEND community together."

Lorraine Petersen OBE, LPEC

"This conference is about supporting schools to support their pupils with SEND, in a time when schools are facing ever increasing financial pressure."

"Over recent years we have seen big changes around supporting pupils with SEND, with very little money and therefore time to fully implement these changes. Professionals working with pupils with SEND need support and guidance on a wide range of areas they are required to be experts on. It has to be affordable, easily accessible and easy to share with other professionals in the school to help raise the priority of SEND in schools."
