Natspec events announcement: 2018

21st June 2018

We’re pleased to announce our latest events for 2018 for FE providers. This includes a new event for recently formed specialist post-16 institutions to learn how to navigate the often confusing and unclear path to successfully establishing  specialist education provision.

In addition, we’re running our TechAbility 2018 conference for all providers across FE who wish to update their knowledge and share best practice information in delivering assistive technology solutions for SEND students.


Post-16 specialist education: essential information for new providers

Have you recently opened new education provision for post-16 or post-19 students with SEND? Or are you thinking of opening a new specialist post-16 institution, funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency?

Entering the FE sector is not straightforward: attend this event to find out common pitfalls and hear what others have learnt about effective transition, curriculum planning, costings, staffing, reporting, contracts, partnerships and more

“I never realised how much I didn’t know about specialist FE provision – I’ve learnt so much” – Sarah Jones, Willow Tree Centre

“Becoming a college changed our whole perspective and culture.” – Therese Timberlake, ROC College; Part of United Response, Devon
