Special needs association Nasen will be running an information point at Bett 2009 to help teachers and advisers make the best use of the £10m-a-year training fund for Sencos (special educational needs co-ordinators) announced last July.
From September Sencos have to be qualified teachers and those already in post have until 2011 to become suitably qualified. The money will allow current Sencos to undertake new, nationally-accredited training and a further £12m has been earmarked for trainee and qualified teachers.
In addition Nasen will put a team of experts in the firing line at its daily "Ask the ICT expert about Inclusion and supporting SEN" sessions, between 3.00 and 4.00pm.
