IPSEA will be running a training day for parents, carers (and supporting family members) in Newcastle on the 22 November 2019 at Irwin Mitchell Solicitors.

Our one day training is designed specifically for parents, carers and supporting family members, providing you with an introduction to the law on special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), and empowering you to secure the right education for your child. 

Delivered by a member of IPSEA's expert legal team, the training explains what your local authority and education setting should be doing to help, the process of obtaining an Education Health and Care (EHC) plan for your child, and also looks at what an EHC plan should contain. 

The content is particularly relevant for parents and carers who are looking to secure additional support at school and/or an EHC plan for their child, but would also be suitable for those who already have a plan in place and would like to learn more about the law and how it applies to children and young people.

Please note, the training relates to the law as it applies in England.


The day will start with registration at 9.45am. The training will begin at 10am and end at 2.30pm. There will then be a question and answer session until 3.15pm. 

You will need to bring a packed lunch or make your own lunch arrangements. Tea/coffee will be available on the day.

You must book your place in advance as we are unable to take any bookings on the day. 

Bookings for this IPSEA Training will close around 7 days in advance of the training date. We strongly encourage you to book as soon as you can, as once the event is closed/sold out, we are unable to take bookings and increase numbers.

Kindly supported by Irwin Mitchell Solicitors.
