London to host popular international education conference

News - 07 Jun 2019

ISEC (Inclusive and Supportive Education Conference) is back and next year we are excited to announce that the popular international SEND conference is coming to London!

nasen and UCL are working in partnership to deliver the conference which will happen on 3rd-5th August 2020 at the UCL Institute of Education in London. 
 
The event, which typically attracts more than 500 visitors worldwide and runs every five years will focus on 'Closing the Research to Practice Gap'. This follows on from the Inclusion and Equity theme in 2015, which took place in Lisbon. 
 
Gill Brackenbury, Director of UCL Centre for Inclusive Education said: “We are delighted to be working with nasen to bring ISEC to the IOE in August 2020. Research-informed classroom practice is as important now as it has ever been. ISEC 2020 is an exciting opportunity for researchers and practitioners to work together to continue this essential dialogue.”
Dr Adam Boddison, Chief Executive of nasen said: “It’s a real honour to be welcoming this significant and high-profile event to our capital. For years now, ISEC has been bringing together academics, practitioners and policy makers from around the world who all have an interest in promoting inclusive education and nasen are extremely proud to be right at the heart of it.” 
 
To help support and enhance co-production, as outlined within the SEND Code of Practice, ISEC 2020 will also welcome families.   
 
Tickets are now available to buy here.
