After listening to the views of Teachers, Parent/Carers and most importantly, our SEND young people, Nasen (the National Association for Special Educational Needs) requested a suite of resources for mainstream and special schools around best practice transition to support year 11’s with SEND during this pandemic. To launch this key piece of work there is a webinar (which is free to attend) introducing the resources and helping people understand the importance and potential of strong transition guidance
Title: Securing Good Transitions: A Resources Pack to support the Next Steps of Key Stage 4 Pupils with SEND
Date: Thursday 4 February 2021
Time: 16:00 (4pm)
Host: Claire Cookson, CEO DFN Foundation / DFN Project SEARCH
“People with SEND have the right to choose a path toward education and employment. Strong transition and careers advice and guidance in schools is essential for all learners, yet in this time of national crisis it can feel impossible. Curriculum design has had to change significantly, classroom delivery has had to change immeasurably, but out of this have come some of the most innovative adaptions and flexibilities we have ever seen. Everything is possible, we just have to re-think, re-group and share best practice.
This webinar will explore why it is essential that we focus on positive transitions for our learners with SEND, both during this pandemic and after. How to use these resources to support best practice and remain high aiming and truly learner focused. And what the impact will be, both in the short and long term for this cohort across each of our schools.”
