SEND Leadership Programme: Module Four - Expert sessions
Tuesday 20th - Wednesday 21st March 2018.
The Children and Families Act 2014 expects significant changes in the way that SEND services and support are delivered and the outcomes that are achieved. This will require effective local leadership that understands the reforms and their aspirations, and is also able to demonstrate effective, solution-focused leadership that leads to real change.
For the last two years, to help with this challenge, the Department for Education has commissioned a leadership development programme from NDTi as part of the national delivery support contract ‘Delivering Better Outcomes Together’. Following extremely positive feedback from participants and managers DfE is commissioning and part-funding a third cohort of 40 people for 2017.
Module Four: Expert sessions
Joint commissioning and integration. Understanding the different leadership styles and behavioural traits that are important to working across organisational boundaries, including though a focus on:
- Understanding the breadth of commissioning, at both strategic and individual levels
- Definitions of joint commissioning and integration and what it might look like
- The evidence base for joint working – what needs to be in place
Repeat of the earlier expert sessions – see above.
Please note this event is only open to people on the SEND 2017/2018 programme.
