Producing good quality health and social care advice for education, health and care (EHC) plans
The Council for Disabled Children have produced a document - 'Securing good quality health advice for education, health and care (EHC) plans'.
The purpose of this document is to support local authorities, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and NHS trusts to set up processes that facilitate the provision of good health advice as part of an education, health and care (EHC) Needs Assessment.
It features a Frequently Asked Questions section based on the queries and challenges raised by health professionals in local areas. It does not provide any advice about clinical issues.
They have also written the document 'Securing good quality social care advice for EHC plans'. The purpose of this document is to support local authorities to set up processes that facilitate getting good social care advice.
The SEND Gateway provides an opportunity for the education workforce to develop new skills and understanding of SEND reforms. Staff can access resources and training materials from the UK's leading voluntary community sector (VCS) organisations supporting children and young people with SEN.
The send gateway is an online portal offering education professionals free, easy access to high quality information, resources and training for meeting the needs of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
Focus on SEND training for educational practitioners working across Early Years, Primary, Secondary and Post 16
Focus on SEND training is a free course aiming to help teachers and educational practitioners working across the 0 – 25 years age range to develop high quality practice in order to better meet the needs of their learners with SEND. It is based on the evidence of what constitutes good continuing professional development (CPD) and so takes a practice- led, enquiry-based and collaborative approach.
The modules explore:
- high quality practice and what this means for SEND;
- the participation and engagement both of children or young people and of their parents and families;
- identifying needs and the role of assessment;
- the process for arriving at meaningful outcomes;
- meeting needs and how the cycle of assess, plan, do, review can be used to best effect.
Focus on SEND training offers both online content and opportunities to carry out practical activities in your own setting. Although it won’t make you an expert in SEND, it will help you to recognise your own skills and experience and use them to begin to unpick the needs of learners.
