In order to improve the skills and confidence of the schools’ workforce in supporting the delivery of high-quality SEND provision to pupils, Real Training and Whole School SEND have developed an online version of SEND Reviewer Training. This will enable more people within the schools’ workforce to conduct quality reviews of SEND provision and empowering settings to improve their practices.
To benefit from this course, please complete your details below and we’ll send you log-in details to our virtual learning environment, Campus Online.
By registering you are also agreeing to us sharing your information with the Department for Education via its agent NASEN (holders of the Whole School SEND contract) so that we can report on the use of public money to design and deliver the course.
By completing this free course, you will be able to:
We offer and encourage delegates to be paired with another participant, known as ‘SEND Professional Partners’, to train together online, and subsequently to undertake the school reviews together. This enables peer-to-peer use of the SEND Review Tool across two (or more) settings, and facilitate development of professional practice between the ‘SEND Professional Partners’.
Using the Whole School SEND Review Tool and with the support of the course ‘Professional Partner’, delegates will undertake a review of their own school SEND. They will then reciprocate this process in the partner’s school. In addition, we ensure that you are allocated an appropriate partner where you will be able to share similar challenges, experiences and best practice. Where possible, we aim to partner you with participants from a similar setting (e.g. primary, secondary, special and alternative provision) as well as geographical location.
If you choose to engage in the ‘SEND Professional Partners’ pairing, you will arrange to visit each other’s provision to support each other undertaking the review in each school. Where geographical or other factors preclude travel, the review discussions can be undertaken remotely via video conferencing to discuss practice, gather evidence, share good practice from other settings and think through areas of the framework which are not yet demonstrated.
Within this structure, SEND Professional Partners will work together as ‘critical friends’, reviewing each other’s provision, learning from good practice and supportively challenging areas for development.
This course is delivered fully online, hosted on our bespoke virtual learning environment, Campus Online. Furthermore, the course is free, and you will have access to its content for one year, following your enrolment.
Although this is not mandatory to complete the course, we do highly recommend taking advantage of this opportunity to cement your new skills and knowledge.
This course is now available to access, so enrol today.
