SEND Product Testing

News - 31 Jan 2017

We’ve teamed up with a number of organisations who need your help in trialling out their SEND product - so we’re on the lookout for some of our members to help us trial these products that will soon come on to the market, or re-launch.

Would you like to trial SEND products for FREE?

Your views and opinions are invaluable to them and us, as we share your product experience with other nasen members via Special, online and through social media.This really is a great opportunity to play a hands on role in shaping future SEND products. What’s more, as a thank you, you will be entitled to a FREE one unit/year’s subscription* of that product, for you to continue using in your school.

How it works

Once we have your details, we will invite you to express an interest in trialling a particular product via e-mail. You will have two weeks to a month to trial the product, taking notes as you go along and logging any interesting activity. Our Education and Marketing Team will keep in close contact, and at the end of the trial arrange a meet with you to find out how you got on. At this stage, we may want to take photos or a video capturing your time with that product. A review will then be written detailing your experience and shown to the organisation who owns that product. Given that all parties are happy, we will publish your review in the next available edition of nasen Connect (previously Special) magazine, on the nasen website and through our Twitter and Facebook page.

Interested?

If your school or setting is interested in becoming a product tester, please fill out our submission form and we will keep your details on file for when an opportunity becomes available.
