Thames Valley Enterprise Advisors SEND Awareness Training

In order to upskill local Enterprise Advisors who work in both SEND and mainstream schools, four Local Enterprise Partnerships across the Thames Valley region held a morning conference to improve attendees' confidence in understanding the needs of SEND young people and the role they can play in ensuring that schools careers programmes and activities reflect the differing needs of all students and are fully inclusive, thereby meeting Gatsby Benchmark 3.

In total, 40 Enterprise Advisors attended the live session which saw presentations from the following speakers: Deborah Foster, Enterprise Co-ordinator for SEMLEP; Jenny Connick, Managing Director of Talentino; Maurice George, Careers Leader at Brookfields School in Reading; Tom Cliffe, Enterprise Advisor at Isebrook School in Kettering; and Nikki Wakefield, Enterprise Coordinator for Thames Valley Berkshire.

Topics covered included: ‘Understanding young people with SEND’; ‘Working with young people with SEND’; and ‘Next steps’. There was also a specialist Q&A panel which proved to be very busy and beneficial to those who attended.

The recordings of these sessions were then distributed to 286 advisors in the Thames Valley Region. Access the recordings below.
