Common Training Day

Our next Common Training Day is on Friday 25th October 2019.

Every year, one day is set aside for a full programme of collaborative training events in which all of the special schools participate in.  We invite a variety of external training providers to deliver training on SEN subject areas to increase the knowledge and expertise of our staff across the District.
