Leading change in SEND and AP
Leading Change in SEND and AP. Introducing our new multi-agency leadership development programme for strategic leads across England.

We’re thrilled to be working with the Staff College to offer this comprehensive programme designed for ambitious leaders keen to improve life outcomes for children and young people with SEND or AP requirements and their families.

Both organisations have collaborated successfully in the South West of England to offer a multi-agency SEND and AP leadership development programme. We are now offering a similar programme on a national level.

Each organisation brings a wealth of experience and expertise to this programme, with our own SEND and Next Generation programmes and the Staff College's partnership with Upon Leaders.

The Leading Change programme focuses on building a cohort of well equipped SEND and AP leaders, strengthening a consistent approach and facilitating intentional leadership across England. This will increase professional pride, credibility and trust across the SEND and AP community, and ultimately boost life outcomes for children and young people and their families.
