Join us for a FREE discussion exploring ‘person-centred working’ in secondary/FE settings.
Featuring Claire Cookson: Chief Executive Officer of DFN Project SEARCH, and DFN Foundation, Claire is an experienced senior leader and public speaker with an extensive background in education, innovative curriculum design and best practice supported employment. Formally a headteacher of a broad-spectrum special school, Claire now leads this fast growing dynamic charity that seeks to support best practice transition to employment for people with a learning disability and or autism, both nationally and internationally.
Experienced chair and board member, Claire is currently a Trustee of a specialist school with the primary responsibility for safeguarding. Claire also supports many national workstreams around evidence-based transition to employment provision.
The discussion will be hosted by Whole School SEND’s regional lead, Anna Mehta, and everyone will be encouraged to join in, ask questions and share experiences. As such, content will be responsive but may cover some or all of the following themes:
• The importance of person-centred approaches for learners with SEND.
• How person-centred approaches can be used in schools and colleges to give learners a voice and support them in achieving their aspirations for the future.
The discussion builds on our 20 minute online SEND CPD units. While everyone is welcome to take part in the session, delegates who have completed the corresponding unit content in preparation are likely to find the sessions particularly helpful.
Due to the interactive nature of these sessions, recordings will not be made available after the event.
