ASDAN delighted to be announced as TES SEN Show Virtual roundtable sponsor

05/01/2021

ASDAN is looking forward to leading a roundtable discussion on ‘How to achieve ambitious outcomes for all learners with SEND’ at the Tes SEN Show Virtual at 2pm on Friday 15 January.

As a roundtable sponsor, ASDAN invites you to attend their brand-new roundtable session at Tes SEN Show Virtual – a maximum of 30 delegates can register so please book soon to avoid disappointment.

During the roundtable discussion, ASDAN will be showcasing My Independence, their new preparing for adulthood programme structured around the four preparing for adulthood pathways.

My Independence provides the most relevant programme for young people with SEND and education, health and care plans, fully aligning to their educational needs. An education practitioner from one of ASDAN's pilot sites will be joining the discussion to share the positive impact My Independence has already had on their learners.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to have their say on a key area of SEND education – achieving ambitious outcomes. This will be a focus of the Department for Education’s SEND review, due out later this year.

For those who cannot attend the roundtable discussion, ASDAN invites you to visit their virtual booth to find out more about their latest developments, including My Independence, and other courses tailored to young people with SEND.

Staff at ASDAN's virtual booth will be available to answer any of your questions and to provide further information on how ASDAN courses can meet the needs of your learners. You will also be able to download free sample materials of My Independence resources.

Jenny Williams, ASDAN Chief Executive, said: “As teachers, parents and carers prepare to keep young people with SEND engaged in learning during lockdown, a positive focus on pathways to adulthood is more important than ever. Our thanks go to the organisers for the opportunity to reconnect with teachers at Tes SEN Show Virtual.” 

Simon Lawrence, ASDAN Head of Development, said: “We are really looking forward to meeting you at Tes SEN Show Virtual and are delighted to be leading a roundtable discussion on the vital issue of helping learners with SEND achieve high-quality outcomes.

“We will share some of our guiding principles on helping learners prepare for adulthood, and we are looking forward to hearing your views and creative ideas too. Together we can be ambitious for young people with SEND and their transition into adulthood.”

ASDAN is an education charity and awarding organisation providing courses, accredited curriculum programmes and regulated qualifications to engage, elevate and empower young people aged 11 to 25 in greatest need.
