The service will be made available to all providers across the FE sector and aims to improve both IT systems and Assistive Technology to enable access to learning for all students with SEND.

Natspec’s Technology Advisory Group meets three times per year and is responsible for driving improvement and sharing good practice across the sector.

Full member colleges can join the meetings or join the virtual network group, via Slack. To join the virtual chat on all things technology related, please contact
