Research

This research explores the experiences of the school workforce in relation to their access to, and experience of SEND CPD. Bath Spa University and the University of Birmingham researched and reported the type of SEND CPD offered/ accessed, CPD preferences and the perceived impact of having such access.

The findings included:

  • SEND CPD tends to be led by the needs of the current cohort
  • Less than half or respondents stated that social media formed part of their SEND CPD
  • Consultation with a professional is perceived as the most effective SEND CPD
  • Over half or respondents stated that coaching/discussion and observation of colleagues were considered more effective than INSET days
  • 8 out of 10 respondents are extremely or somewhat likely to access more online and distance SEND CPD in the future
