Disability Working Group
The Disability Working Group (DWG) is a collaboration between school, college and HEI practitioners to raise awareness of the issues facing learners with SEND in education (specifically at points of transition) to work across educational sector to overcome them.
- Enable the student voice
- Identify and raise awareness of the needs of learners with SEND in the context of education
- Support the understanding of key issues affecting transitions for learners, staff and key adults who support them
- Take forward issues that arise to effect change at a local level
Members meet twice a year to review and plan programme activity. Progress is reported to the Aimhigher London Steering Group.
Our programme of Continual Professional Development (CPD) is developed by and for our members.
Our CPD sessions provide those staff attending with the necessary tools and resources to pass onto other members of staff within their own institutions.
Our most recent CPD Conference was held on 5th February 2020 on the subject of ‘Coping with Cuts: Doing More with Less’.
