Over the past six months, Jonathan Bond has worked with nasen to develop ‘Focus on SEND’. This free DfE-funded online CPD takes nine hours to complete and has been created for all mainstream teachers and settings across England.
This key resource launches at nasen Live on 29-30 April.
Jonathan, our head of learning design, discusses the project and outlines its vital significance:
‘This was developed to square the circle of delivering practical change in teaching practice through a very short training course. Teachers face a great deal of competing time pressures and many existing courses simply add to this workload.
‘With this nine-hour course, we created a series of short, engaging activities that enable teachers to experience the key aspects of the graduated approach – which is now central to the new Code of Practice.
‘Experiential learning is not only the cornerstone of this course, but also lies at the heart of truly effective CPD.’
