Joining up pre and post 16 education; Learner centred commissioning. Held at Westminster Studio, London SW1

Headline Speakers

This national conference provided an opportunity for school and college leaders and heads of SEN and LLDD to come together with local authorities, third party providers and voluntary sector representatives to respond to the Green Paper.

Expert speakers shared the latest information on the steps already being taken in a new commissioning landscape; how to ensure the right type and level of support can be given to every vulnerable learner and how pre and post 16 education can be joined up.
