nasen Northern Ireland

The Northern Ireland branch of nasen consists of a committee of professionals from a variety of educational backgrounds. This includes teachers, lecturers and support workers from the special, primary, secondary, higher education and youth justice sectors with a wide range of experience, knowledge and expertise.

Our vision, as a passionate group of SEN educationalists is to:

  • Offer localised support to school staff – SENcos, leaders, teachers, governors, Classroom Assistants, parents, and further education students
  • Provide relevant, high quality & affordable CPD training
  • Engage in multi – agency networking
  • To ensure best practice & advocate for our children
  • Promote nasen UK as a n organisation

We are pleased to be working the newly appointed nasen Ambassador for Northern Ireland Mr Alastair Rowan in promoting the work of nasen NI and nasen UK.
