AoC SEND Conference

The latest updates and practical guidance in supporting the progression and delivering high quality teaching and learning for SEND students in your college.

AoC’s SEND Conference offers you a packed programme and the space to discuss the holistic picture of SEND in the FE sector. You will leave with lots of ideas and approaches to take back to your college. We will dedicate time to look at the National Centres for Excellence in SEND, including the innovative work that they are doing and how this can support your centre. In addition we will spend time exploring the new Education Inspection Framework with one of the pilot colleges and discuss the impact of the changes on college SEND provision.

This is the one time of the year for college SEND professionals to get together nationally and share experiences with both new and established colleagues.
