The Department for Education commissions this leadership development programme from NDTi as part of the national delivery support contract Delivering Better Outcomes Together (a partnership between Mott MacDonald, NDTi and CDC). The course provides the opportunity for personal leadership development as well as hearing about some of the most effective SEND related practice through expert sessions.

The programme will start late September 2021, bringing together up to 45 people in a series of modules. We aim to run the programme as a mix of residential and online sessions – depending on recent government guidelines around social distancing, and any changes to these guidelines. The aim of the programme is to develop new or existing skills and apply them in work to deliver support and services, specifically for children and young people with SEND and their families in the local area.

Applications were  invited from Senior Local Authority SEND Managers & Leaders of Education or Social Care or health (including DCs) with significant strategic responsibilities for delivering support and services around SEND. We welcomed applications from leaders with a social care, education or health background, given the cultural change and multidisciplinary approach that is required to improve the lives of children and young people with SEND.

Applications are ideally submitted by a pair of people from a local area. We recommend that people attend as part of a pair with another leader from a different part of the ‘system’ who also has responsibility for implementing change.
