Communities of Practice for managers and practitioners

The three Centres for Excellence (CfE) in SEND are each hosting Communities of Practice (CoPs) covering topics within their individual themes (People, Curriculum and Community). These CoP are open to anyone working in Further Education and Skills with an interest in improving experiences for learners with an inclusion need (SEN). The focus of the CoPs is to share and identify effective practice and to work collaboratively as a community of professionals to address challenges.

Joint webinars

The three CfE's ran two joint webinars in 2021:

  • Motivating and engaging our SEND community during the pandemic webinar - An opportunity to hear about effective practice during lockdown and to have time for group discussion. They shared how they were responding to and ensuring: staff and learners with SEND remain motivated, safe and taking care, the curriculum motivates learners with SEND and learners with SEND are motivated to progress into employment.
  • What's positive and possible during the pandemic? webinar - The regional Preparation for Adulthood (PfA) Coordinators and the three CfE in SEND held a collaborative and interactive workshop exploring key themes. 

Please contact any of the three CfEs to find out more.
