October 14 amp; 15, 2011: Business Design Centre, London
Professionals in special educational needs are under fire from all angles: budget cuts, Ofsted criticisms of over-diagnosing, policy changes, and potentially the loss of teaching training courses. The first international TES SEN conference will enable you to hear from the leaders of the sector, those involved in the policy-making, as well as hear international perspectives and relevant experiences to enable you to learn about the most recent developments in the SEN sector and how to navigate successfully the immediate future.
Alongside the conference, the TES Special Needs London exhibition will be open offering conference attendees the opportunity to browse and purchase the latest SEN resources and services from over 150 special education needs suppliers. Colleagues not attending the conference can register to attend the exhibition for free at www.teachingexhibitions.co.uk, where they can also enrol for the popular and informative seminars running throughout the two days.
