Aimed at parents and carers of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), this one-day training has been developed as a guide for parents who already have an EHC Plan in place for their child.

From looking at the information a plan should contain, through to how to achieve that through annual reviews, re-assessments and appeals to the SEND Tribunal, this training day will help you navigate the system, supporting you to make informed and positive decisions regarding your child’s education.

The training covers the following topics:

  • What should an education, health and care plan look like?
  • What information should it contain?
  • What to do if you’re not happy with a plan
  • Using the annual review
  • Requesting re-assessment
  • Appealing to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal

When asked what they liked most about our training, an attendee at a recent virtual session said:

"The trainers professionalism, organisation, clarity and knowledge, as well as her readiness to answer many of our questions, and the quality of her answers. Her pleasant manner and the ease with which she was delivering her presentation. Today's training took us far, much farther than we have travelled so far with our child's EHCP. Thank you!"

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