SEND Reviewer Training

To maximise the benefits of the SEND Review guide we offer a day long training session. The morning session focuses on how to prepare for the day of the review itself, approaches to gathering evidence on the day of the review and good practice in providing feedback and reporting. Following this, the afternoon session focuses on how to provide effective coaching for follow-up visits and support. We are proud to have trained a community of more than 350 SEND reviewers to date.
