Welcome to the Excellence Gateway’s Special Educational Needs and Disabilities exhibition site

This site brings together some of the most effective materials available on the Excellence Gateway, as well as brand new material. This site will be of interest to teachers, support staff, managers and leaders, working in the FE sector, who want to improve the outcomes for learners with SEND.

Resources are grouped under the key themes that you as sector providers have identified:

  • working in the sector
  • teaching and learning (including RARPA and Specfic needs and wellbeing)
  • leadership and management
  • employers and employment.

We now have our Centres for Excellence in SEND support.

Our aim is to work together with you and our team of sector experts to spread effective practice and improve learning delivery across the sector.

Join the conversation with #SENDinFE.
