The aim of this network is to share best practice and provide discussion points on issues relating to provision for Learners with Learning Difficulties or Disabilities in colleges. The network is open to senior managers and expert practitioners and has a particular focus on sharing practical solutions to current challenges.
Recent meetings have included presentations and discussion on policy changes arising from the Children and Families Act, the high needs funding methodology, and Inclusive Skills Competitions. Guest speakers have included the Education Funding Agency and the 0-25 SEND Unit at the Department for Education.
Members have also had the opportunity to look at LLDD resources and accommodation at the host college.
