DfE SEND/Assistive Technology Event

Skills for Life Network

 

Date: Tuesday 3rd March 2015

Venue: Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) Manchester

This event, which is free to attend, will provide an overview of SEND provision and policy with regard to youth programmes, with a particular focus on the application of assistive technology. It will bring together existing examples of best practice from around the sector and give awareness of strategies and tools that providers can consider building into their delivery programmes.

Attendees will ‘build their own agenda’ choosing to attend a mixture of the sessions which best suit their individual needs, priorities and interests. Across the rolling presentations and workshops the event will cover information, guidance and best practice in areas such as:

  • Current legal requirements
  • Identification of need 
  • Common misconceptions surrounding special needs and disabilities
  • Learner support strategies, both pastorally and in teaching and learning 
  • SEND learner views of provision
  • Arrangement and support of Supported Internships and other work experience for SEND learners
  • The availability and application of assistive technologies in delivering youth provision
