The SEND conference was a fantastic opportunity to meet with like minded professionals, hear the latest good practice evolving in regards to SEN, as well as be updated on any policy changes and the best way forwards.
- City and Islington College-WKCIC Group
Being new to the role of SENDCO, the conference allowed me to meet other people in the same role as me, as well as inspiring and informative presentations that gave me a lot to go away and think about. The examples of best practice were very useful in allowing me to see the possibilities that lay ahead of me in and challenging me to provide the best possible support for my students.

The SEND conference was a wonderful opportunity to get an in-depth insight into the role of SENCOs in schools, the various needs of students and the different ways in which the school community can support them and their families.
