The SEND Reforms Leadership Programme Short Programme - Birmingham
Birmingham, 19th and 20th February 2019
To allow for late applications, the closing date has been changed to 26th November 2018.
Outline of the Programme
The programme has two two-day residential modules, comprising:
- A detailed focus on leadership, personal style and achieving change
- Exploration of the leadership styles needed to deliver real participation and joint commissioning/integration
- Leading edge practice sessions on key reform policy priorities to develop knowledge of innovative practice
The whole programme is delivered within the context of the SEND reforms, with an emphasis on applying your learning to real-work challenges. Facilitation and presentation will be from skilled NDTi and DBOT personnel who have leadership development and SEND expertise, plus input from other experts in the SEND field, including DfE and parent carer organisations.
Who Can and Should Apply
Applications are invited from local authority SEND managers/leaders of education, social care or health leaders with significant strategic responsibilities for delivering the reforms. We would particularly welcome applications from leaders with a social care and health background given the cultural change and multidisciplinary approach that is required to implement these reforms. Applications are ideally submitted by a pair of people from a local area, for example two local authority leaders with different responsibilities such as in relation to education or social care, or alternatively one LA leader and a partner from health. Applications will also be accepted from Local Authority SEND leaders and health leaders.
The programme is appropriate for people who wish to develop their knowledge and skills, both those experienced in SEND issues and those in senior positions who may be newer to the SEND field.
There are sessions available in the North West and South East Regions. For further information and dates, application form and flyer, please click here.
