Addressing Special Educational Needs at NASEN Live
“We believe that the best outcomes for children and young people with special educational and additional needs are secured by working together in partnership with schools, settings and colleges to influence government policy to inform and provide effective practice.” nasen vision
Nasen Live provides the opportunity for SENCOs, teachers and all practitioners to refresh and update their knowledge, learn from evidence-based practice and feel supported throughout the coming year. With a professional community of ongoing support for everyone attending, and a whole range of opportunities for delegates to learn and examine what good practice looks like, delegates can plan their school training day around the seminar programme and briefings.
This year nasen Live is being held on 29 - 30 April in an exciting new venue. The Royal Armouries in Leeds is a multi-million pound venue located at Leeds Dock – a vibrant, flexible, contemporary workspace only a short distance from the centre of Leeds. To broaden the audience of visitors, and to improve accessibility for those who find it difficult to take time out of their busy working week to attend, nasen Live will be held on a Saturday for the first time.
TG Escapes is delighted to be exhibiting at this year’s event, so come along to our stand and have a chat with Matt about how a Learning Escape could enhance the potential of your students with SEN and AEN. We have recently completed two projects for the Cambian Group, one of the largest providers of specialist behavioural health services for children and adults in the UK. Although their work embraces many specialist disciplines, it is united by a common purpose: to actively enable each and every one of the people in their care to achieve their personal best, however it is defined by them or for them.
This is what they had to say about the suite of specialist classrooms that we built for them at the Cambian Pengwern College in North Wales:
“It has made such a difference being in a beautiful room that is warm and quiet. The lovely view outside really appeals to all the senses. It’s such a calming environment and I have noticed that the students are much calmer and more engaged. They like the structure of the room: low stimulus really works for our Autistic learners.”
“The strength of our services and our ability to engage with, motivate and grow our membership will sustain our position as the UK’s leading organisation for special educational and additional needs, championing the cause of those supporting and improving outcomes for children and young people with SEN/AEN across the 0 – 25 age range.” nasen mission
