The programme is strongly rooted in work-based practice, equipping SENCOs to evaluate and develop effective leadership and management of SEND provision. The practical and interactive sessions are an opportunity for SENCOs to meet and discuss topics including: the statutory and regulatory context for SEN and the implications for practice in the school or setting (including requirements for the Local Offer); the principles and practice of leadership in different contexts; how a SEN and/or disability affect pupils'; participation and learning; strategies for improving outcomes for pupils with SEN and/or disabilities; working strategically with senior colleagues and governors; leading and developing colleagues and promoting improvements in teaching; evaluating evidence about learning, teaching and assessment in relation pupils with SEN to inform practice; drawing on external sources of support and expertise; developing, implementing and monitoring systems; using person-centred approaches to build on and extend the experiences, interests, skills and knowledge of children and young people with SEN and/or disabilities; encouraging family leadership with parents and carers as equal partners in their child's achievement, progress and well-being. These sessions are aimed at equipping SENCOs to evaluate and develop effective leadership and management of SEND provision and improve the learning outcomes and achievements of pupils who have a special educational need and/or disability.
