Westminster Education Forum seminar

Our Head of Policy and Advice Angela Matthews will be taking part in this event.

This seminar will consider next steps for special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) policy - focusing on high needs funding, local SEND provision and opportunities for improving outcomes.

Delegates will consider the extent to which the transition to Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans has been successful in providing tailored support for young people with SEND, and what further action might be taken in this important area for policy - with the Government expected to expand on its vision later this year.

The seminar will also be an opportunity to discuss key themes emerging from the Education Select Committee’s inquiry into SEND provision, and to discuss what more might be done to address concerns around the level and distribution of SEND funding.

Further sessions will examine how best to develop effective multi agency collaboration between the education, health and social care sectors; and the further steps that might be taken to improve outcomes for SEND pupils - looking at access to further education and employment, and the transition to adult services.

Our Head of Policy and Advice Angela Matthews will be taking part in the panel discussion on 'Improving outcomes for SEND pupils: the transition to adult services and access to further education and employment'.
