This workshop explores strategic Local Authority responses to inclusive education. We will work together on leading ideas such as creating ‘Inclusion Facilitation Teams’, radical changes to support service working practices and other ideas crucial to increasing inclusion in school systems. A substantial part of the day will be spent creating a shared tangible vision for the future and agreeing practical goals towards this over the next year.
There’s no better way to get set up, get trained, and get going on inclusion. The most knowledgeable trainers will teach you all the basics in face-to-face training sessions, and guide you through more advanced concepts and ideas. So whether you’re brand-new to inclusion, a seasoned pro, or somewhere in between, we will help take your skills to the next level.
