Achieving the Best Outcomes - CPD session for Senior Leaders and Governors with responsibility for SEND

Target audience:

Senior Leaders and Governors with responsibility for SEND (Secondary Schools)

Outline of event:

Do you know how many adults with learning difficulties are in employment in this area? Do you know how we can work together to increase this figure and provide equal life chances for all East Riding learners?

Chapter 8 of the SEND Code of Practice January 2015 sets out how professionals across education, health and social care should support children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) or disabilities to prepare for adult life (PfA), and help them go on to achieve the best outcomes in employment, independent living, health and community participation.

The overall aim of this session is to obtain your commitment and identify ways to work together to enhance the support for young people with SEND, encourage them and their families to have high aspirations, and ensure that all education and training providers serving the East Riding share the same 'presumption of employment'.

This session will examine this Chapter of the Code in more detail, and provide an opportunity to consider and share what you already do, hear about good practice, and plan improvements.

The session will include:
- How high aspirations about employment, independent living and community participation should be developed through the curriculum and extra-curricular provision.
- Ideas about how to effectively engage with families in relation to PfA
- Advice on how to develop plans to support the transition into post-16 education and training, and the transition to Higher Education.
- Delivering effective Careers Advice and Personal Guidance
- How to develop high quality study programmes for SEND learners which provide stretch and progression and include an element of work related learning and the development of the skills that employers value.
- How to work in partnership to provide opportunities such as taster courses, link programmes and mentoring which will enable young people with SEND to familiarise themselves with the college/training provider environment and gain some experience of college life and study.
- Local Authority support and update including Supported Internships, log on move careers gateway, Employability Skills Passport.

We are delighted that this session will be facilitated by Pat Bullen who is the Preparing for Adulthood regional contact for Yorkshire and the Humber.

Pat has over 30 years of experience as a teacher, Head teacher and senior education leader, having qualified in 1984 to teach children with severe learning difficulties. Pat also worked as an independent educational consultant leading the Leicester City SEND Regional reforms, and in 2015 she joined the NDTi (National Development Team for Inclusion) as an Associate Consultant contributing to the national ‘Delivering Better Outcomes Together SEND leadership course, and in April 2016 became a member of the NDTi hosted ‘Preparing for Adulthood’ team. In addition Pat is a school improvement adviser for SEND in Leicester City, a member of the nasen (national association for special educational needs) national training team, and has served as a Governor as a member of staff, as a community and LA governor, and as a parent governor, in six different local authority areas,

The session will be held on Monday 21 January 2018 at Bishop Burton College starting at 1.00pm (a light lunch will be available from 12.00) and finishing at 4.30pm

This session will be appropriate for senior leadership team members and governors from East Riding secondary schools, FE and Sixth Form Colleges, and other post 16 organisations.
