National Advisory Groups

AoC SEND National Delivery Group

The purpose of the AoC SEND National Delivery Group is to help AoC consider and influence the implementation of current and future Government policy on SEND both for learners with EHC plans and those without. It will also include looking at any changes to High Needs Funding and the implications these might have for learners. The group will explore and test options and ideas, with strong engagement of members at the heart of the remit.
