SEND services

Member services

We provide support and advice to colleges through our member services. These include:

  • Advice and information on all aspects of policy, good practice and student issues in relation to students with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) in colleges. This includes students with Education Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) as well as those with SEND who do not have EHCPs.
  • Briefings, containing the latest news and analysis on related issues.
  • We host AoC Regional Networks to disseminate information regarding policy initiatives in relation to SEND, and to gather feedback from member colleges about the impact of initiatives on their colleges and students.
