THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will bring together policymakers and key stakeholders to discuss the next steps for Additional Support for Learning (ASL) provision in Scotland.
Delegates will discuss the way forward to tackling the key issues for resources, accessing support, and early identification and assessment of children with Additional Support Needs (ASN) identified in The Scottish Parliament’s Education and Skill Committee report on ASL provision in Scotland.
Delegates will also consider the availability of appropriate support as identified in the Scottish Government’s draft strategy on Complex Additional Support Needs.
Further sessions discuss policy priorities for improving the provision of ASL, including opportunities for supporting and expanding the workforce, reducing variation in local authorities approaches to ASN and the relationship between ASL and tackling the wider attainment gap.
