National Star college principal, Simon Welch, and Head of Learning and Support, Joanne Kingsbury-Elia, will discuss how they achieved successful interdisciplinary working with learners with the most complex needs.

A key area that will be covered is the benefits of integrating teaching, support, therapeutic, and care components of students’ individual programmes and maximising the impact for students lives after college. The development of the role of Personalised Learning Co-ordinator Tutor (PLCT), introduced in 2017 as part of the ‘Right Time, Right Place’ project, is a key aspect of this work. Due to the success of the pilot the project has expanded to include more students, across both residential and day provision, and proved to be invaluable during the Coronavirus pandemic.

National Star college is the winner of the 2020 Natspec award for interdisciplinary working.
