By luck or by design?

Ensuring young disabled, neurodivergent or excluded people are prepared for success in higher education

An opportunity to join your peers as we work together to build confidence and expertise in you, the delegates, to further support disadvantaged students – for FREE!

During the day, you will:

  • Find out about how students identified with SEND can best be supported in their journey to higher education.
  • Look at issues related to specific indicators of disadvantage, and accessing appropriate services – the role for practitioners in supporting this will be discussed.
  • Increase your ability to support disadvantaged students, and help staff in school think through how they can support each other’s work.

This conference is for:

  • SENCo’s (Special Educational Needs Coordinators) 
  • Career Leads
  • SEND practitioners working in Information, Advice and Guidance roles
  • Local Authority SEND staff
  • Charities and other supporting organisations supporting SEND students
  • Higher education institution staff supporting SEND students.

Our keynote speaker on the day will be Ellie Rowley, from UCAS, who leads on the Fair Access Programme. She will share insights into the current journey for SEND students and make recommendations as to how practitioners can make this smoother.

There will also be contributions for the Careers and Enterprise Company who are responsible for training Career Leads in how to work more effectively with SENCo’s for the benefit of SEND students, as well as examples of best practice from schools and further education colleges.
