About Us


For over nine years, a unique partnership of SEN leads across the region has been collaborating to run the National Award for SEN Coordination, the follow-on SEN Masters Suite programmes and a range of level 3 and 4 courses for SEN practitioners in schools and settings.

The Eastern Partnership UK (SEND) works in collaboration with Local Authorities, schools and Multi-Academy Trusts across the eastern region to provide SEN professionals with access to a suite of training programmes.

The programmes have enabled nationally prescribed courses to run successfully in local areas, ensuring SENCOs achieve the required learning outcomes whilst building local knowledge and developing effective support networks.

The Eastern Partnership UK (SEND) also offers an innovative audit and planning school improvement tool focusing on special educational needs and disability (SEND), known as aptGO. In addition, it is the home of the Regional SEND Forum through which the latest educational news and research is shared and a platform for discussion is provided.

If you would like to contact Angela Scott or any of the Eastern Partnership UK (SEND) team then please don’t hesitate to call 01438 845 734 or email easternp.send@hertsforlearning.co.uk
