nasen’s Modular CPD Programme

Our new modular CPD programme, linked to the nasen Recognised Teacher/Practitioner of SEND award, provides a comprehensive introduction to SEND and effective support for children and young people.

Fundamental topics and core messages are introduced through webinars from our Knowledge Hub with further opportunities for extensive examination of this content through dedicated live sessions and reflective practice.

We have built the programme in a modular format to allow you to complete one, two or all three modules.
