How does this training aline with the SEND Code of Practice?
The four main areas of the SEND Code of Practice are: Communication and Interaction; Cognition and Learning; Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties; and Physical and/or Sensory needs. This training focuses on communication and interaction however it is important to consider how communication impacts the other key areas, for example improved communication can improve social and emotion and mental health of a child by giving them a voice.
Children and young people with SEND must be included in decisions about their provision, through improved communication we can support children to use their voice.
Provisions should have have high ambitions and set stretching targets for their children, promote positive outcomes in the wider areas of personal and social development, and ensure that the approaches used are based on the best possible evidence. Through this training we will support you in creating goals that stretch your children and create opportunity for development of social and personal skills.

How does this training aline with the SEND Code of Practice?
The four main areas of the SEND Code of Practice are: Communication and Interaction; Cognition and Learning; Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties; and Physical and/or Sensory needs. This training focuses on cognition and learning but has a positive impact on other areas like communication and interaction.
All children and young people are entitled to an appropriate education, one that is appropriate to their needs, promotes high standards and the fulfilment of potential. Provisions for SEND should have high ambitions and set stretching targets for them. This training encourages you to engage with the learning of the children by providing accessible lessons that push them to achieve their potential.
