Axcis are thrilled to sponsor the NATSPEC Annual Conference, which is being held on the 2nd and 3rd April 2019, at the Jury’s Inn, Hinckley. This is a must-attend event for FE professionals who specialise in working with students with learning difficulties and disabilities, particularly those funded through the High Needs funding system.
About this event
“High Needs, High Aspirations” aims to challenge and at the same time enthuse delegates.
Firstly, how do we identify and meet the significant needs of students, staff, professionals and families, as we continue to negotiate a system which has been through almost ten years of austerity and financial challenge, combined with major legislative and structural change? And how do we do this effectively against a backdrop of cultural, political and economic upheaval and uncertainty?
Secondly, how can we stretch the boundaries, raise expectations, and support students to fulfil their full potential? Having high aspirations, for students and the specialists that work with them, and showcasing the expertise and excellence that exists in colleges and their partner organisations, has never been more important.
The Natspec 2019 conference is a must-attend event for FE professionals who specialise in working with students with learning difficulties and disabilities, particularly those funded through the High Needs funding system. At a new venue for 2019, it will be the largest ever high needs FE conference. The 2-day event will bring you the very best practice in specialist further education, celebrating achievements and highlighting the latest in cutting edge research.
You will hear from national specialists and experts, with workshops and keynote sessions covering Ofsted’s new Education Inspection Framework, SEND and the law, strategic planning with LAs, maximising employment outcomes, governance, leaner voice, developing and maintaining staff expertise, physical activity and wellbeing, inclusive strategies for challenging behaviours, and a range of topics to support curriculum planning and delivery.
In addition, new for 2019, the conference incorporates the opportunity to network informally throughout the 2 days with “hot topic” tables for discussions on issues such as financial management, diversification, working with parents, post-college living solutions, MIS and data management, GDPR, mainstream-specialist partnerships, and more.
