About the Regional SEND Forum
The regional SEND Forum provides the ‘go-to’ place for professionals including SENCOs who work with children and young people with SEND. Its geographical reach stretches across all the Local Authorities in the East and includes several London Boroughs which potentially opens the door to sharing knowledge and information across many hundreds of organisations and thousands of professionals.
About the Eastern Partnership UK (SEND)
For over 10 years, a unique partnership of special educational needs/disability (SEND) leads across the region has been collaborating to run the National Award for SEN Coordination, the follow-on SENCO Masters Suite programmes and a range of level 3 and 4 courses for SEND practitioners in schools and settings.
The Eastern Partnership UK (SEND) (hosted by Herts for Learning) works in collaboration with Local Authorities, schools, Multi-Academy Trusts and Teaching School Alliances across the eastern region and beyond, to provide SEND professionals access to a comprehensive suite of training programmes.
The programmes enable nationally recognised courses to run successfully in local areas, ensuring leaders of SEND achieve the required learning outcomes whilst building local knowledge and developing effective support networks.
The Regional SEND Forum has been established using these key principles and a regional working group exists to develop and grow its profile collaboratively in response to feedback from users across the region.
The Eastern Partnership UK (SEND) consists of a strong and active collaboration of partners in the region and beyond as displayed below.
