‘The workforce implications of moving to a more integrated, personalised working style. Partners should consider whether training or a common set of key skills will help professional and providers adapt to meeting the needs of children and young people with SEN in a more personalised way, with a renewed focus on children and young people’s outcomes. Joint training and professional development for the various professionals dealing with children and young people with SEN should be encouraged’ Quote from Draft SEND Code of Practice 0-25 October 2013
Proposal 10 pilot studies established across Kent that involve a ‘blend’ of education, health, care, voluntary groups, employment and work based training providers The pilots will include – Early Years Providers, special and mainstream schools and Academies, non maintained and independent special schools and IS Provider, Colleges, Employers, KATO, Social Services, NHS, Voluntary Groups through VAWK, Specialist Teaching and Learning Services, parents and young people! Working closely alongside the pilots will be Christ Church Canterbury University. The quality marks (IQM and CPLD) will be used in part to deliver the SEND workforce reform strategy in conjunction with the LA core standards The pilots will become centres of excellence and expertise. Models of practice then can be shared with other services, schools and stakeholders.
