Our SENCO Forums provide a national perspective, speakers and resources as well as an independent view of SEND and supporting pupils. 

Each term the agenda offers training opportunities and includes updates that will assist your SENCO role in school such as updates on national issues, planning advice, useful resources and best practice; as well as giving you the opportunity to share experiences and network with other SENCOs in your area. 

SENCOs tell us that the Forums compliment local groups which tend to focus on local issues.

Why not make a day of it by attending our morning training session too - for further information see Full SENCO Training Day
