New webcast out now

News - 12 Jun 2017

Great news – our first webcast from our second series is now available.

This particular webcast looks at the ‘Principles of Assessment’ and is the first in a series of 5 entitled ‘Making Assessment Work for Children and Young People with SEND’.

The webcast will explore what we mean by the term ‘assessment’, the activity of assessment in the context of SEND and what we do with the results of assessment.

The other 4 webcasts within this series will be launched throughout the year, so keep a lookout.

These webcasts are all part of a new bank of e-learning resources are short, ‘bite-sized’ videos exploring different aspects of provision, practice, theory and policy for SEND and are designed to help SENCOs and other leaders to reflect upon their own school or setting.

Please note that nasen webcasts are available to silver and gold nasen members only.
