SEND Reviewer Training

7th Sep 2017
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.
