Merry Christmas from everyone at nasen

News - 13 Dec 2016

2016 has been a very busy year for everyone at nasen, with some big changes happening over the last 12 months, we take a look at what we have achieved in the year and provide a quick overview of what we have to look forward to in 2017.

With Christmas just around the corner, the team at nasen would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year! 

2016 has certainly been a year of change for the organisation, with the team expanding, the new membership structure taking shape and getting ready to re-launch our hugely popular magazine which will now be known to our members as ‘nasen Connect’. In 2016, nasen also launched Focus On SEND which is now actively helping many teachers and SENCOs around the country.

2017 is set to be a memorable year for nasen, as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary. We have lots of activity planned to commemorate this, including nasen Live 2017, which will be hosted at the ICC in Birmingham and feature a special video introduction from Professor Stephen Hawking, and a nasen Awards event, dedicated to recognising groups and individuals working in a SEND environment.    

So, from all of us at nasen, enjoy the festive break and have a lovely Christmas. We look forward to working with you all in 2017.
