    • Ambitious About Inclusion

      Funded by the Department for Education, these online modules address some of the most common SEND training needs across the education sector. They aim to develop a whole school approach to inclusion and include differentiated learning for all workforce roles.

      There are four online modules and within each module, six role-specific ‘routes’ have been developed to ensure content is both relevant and useful to everyone; from those providing direct support to individual children to those providing executive and system leadership across groups of schools.
