So much of the focus on education in SEN is on ‘outcomes’, with practical, real-world training often only considered later on.
In the Saturday opening keynote discussion, hear from a panel of SEND advocates on how to create a holistic approach to build confidence, work towards independence and enhance employability skills for young adults with SEND.
The keynote will be delivered by Lisa Campbell-Squires, Programme Director of Team Domenica, who will share how, at Team Domenica, they advocate for a holistic approach combining education with enrichment sessions, work placements, supported internships and work in their cafes builds confidence and independence skills which can help lead to paid employment. Their in-house work experience is hands-on, real, and public-facing. Their aim is to place their candidates at the heart of the community, which is, after all, where they belong.
The keynote discussion is free to attend. You can reserve your place after you've completed your free registration for the Tes SEN Show.
