  1. Children and Young People with SEND: the legal framework
  2. The Duties on Local Authorities, Schools and FE Institutions
  3. EHC Needs Assessments
  4. EHC Plans, Personal Budgets and Direct Payments
  5. Naming a School or FE Institution
  6. Changing Plans
  7. Rights of Appeal to SEND and Mediation
  8. Disability Discrimination (Introduction to the Equality Act 2010)
  9. SEND Tribunal Procedure 
  10. Exclusions

This online learning is suitable as a stand-alone course of study, but is also designed to complement our Level 1 / Elementary Training Day.  Combining the training in this way will offer participants an opportunity to fully consolidate their learning and to deal with individual queries on the course content.

This course is fabulous both in terms of the resources but also in getting you to think through your answers very carefully which, in turn, means you have to study the information thoroughly. Really enjoyable and informative.

The module content is excellent and the information provided well set out and accessible. The major criticism, and one which is frustrating, is that the system of marking and feeding back success does not identify which answers are correct or incorrect. Trying to improve a score is therefore somewhat a matter of guess work and means being unable to progress. Please amend this within the marking system so that there is a facility to track back in the notes, reread appropriately and make appropriate corrections. Otherwise, an interesting and well presented course.

Extremely frustrating not to be able to see which answers were wrong and why. Revisiting the materials will not help if one has misunderstood. If there was ambiguity in a question and one could have jumped one of two ways then it would be useful to have it confirmed that this is so.

I found it more challanging than I expected, as I know a lot of the content.

Not keen on not being able to find the answers for the questions I got wrong

Very useful and informative - the 'tests' were a very good way of highlighting important information and ensuring some degree of practical application. I would have liked to have known which questions were incorrect so as to have the opportunity to review that area of the briefing papers.
