How we can help provide SEND training for all teachers

Your school has a duty to create an inclusive environment for all your students, and our online SEND training courses can help you to achieve it.

In 2019, 41% of teachers reported that there is appropriate training in place for all teachers in supporting pupils with SEN.*

Having a special educational need or disability can affect a child or young person’s ability to socialise, concentrate and understand, making them feel isolated. 

Schools have a duty to create an inclusive environment where children and young people feel they are treated equally and can learn and aspire. 

So how does your school ensure that all your staff have the training they need to create an environment where all your students can grow and flourish?

Our online SEND courses can help.
