We're running a series of lunchtime training sessions designed specifically for parents, carers and supporting family members of children with special educational needs and disabilities. These sessions have been developed to guide families through the process of obtaining an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan.

From requesting an EHC needs assessment, through to the information a plan should contain and what to do if you’re not happy with the final plan, these sessions will help you navigate the system, supporting you to make informed and positive decisions regarding your child’s education and getting the right plan in place.

Sessions are available to book onto individually (£20 per session), or you can book to attend all sessions (£65). Please select the relevant ticket(s) below when making your booking.
