Nasen, the UK’s leading professional organisation for those working with young people aged up to 25 years with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), will stage a ‘one year on’ update on the implementation of the Government's SEND reform at nasen Live 2015, May 20-21, at the Macron Stadium, Bolton.

Its annual conference is a key event in nasen's endeavours to keep its stakeholders informed of government policy changes and offer best practice support and advice for those in the SEN sector.

Along with a range of nasen professional development and training opportunities throughout the year, nasen Live provides a unique platform for us all to celebrate outstanding practice, effective identification and provision for children and young people with SEND. Additionally, nasen Live will offer a professional community of ongoing support for everyone attending, providing a whole range of opportunities for delegates to learn and examine what good practice looks like within this new landscape.  

Attending nasen Live 2015 provides the opportunity for SENCOs, teachers and all practitioners to refresh and update their knowledge, learn from evidence-based practice and feel supported throughout the coming year. Delegates can plan their school training day around the seminar programme and briefings. What better way to spend a day immersed in SEND expertise, enthusiasm and support?

Nasen Chief Executive Jane Friswell said “We look forward to offering you all a warm welcome at nasen Live 2015, where we celebrate the difference we all make to improving outcomes for children, young people and their families and aspire to do so much more. “We are also delighted to welcome a wide range of experts and professional partners who are contributing to our seminar programme across the two day event.”

Nasen Live 2015 will bring together high quality exhibitors, high profile speakers and dedicated professionals, who all have a passion and commitment to supporting our most vulnerable young people. Attendees of nasen Live 2015 will have an opportunity to look at the excellent range of products, services and resources that are available to help them to offer the best support and nurture, for those whom attendees are responsible for.

The exhibition has been planned at the start of the new financial year, helping those schools looking to use their budgets, especially their Pupil Premium, in the most cost effective way possible to gain a clear understanding of what is on offer from the experts and suppliers..  Being able to ask questions, view and access resources directly with exhibitors is an excellent way of making informed purchasing decisions on behalf of your pupils and students with SEND.

nasen Live will be at the Macron Stadium, Bolton, from May 20-21. For more information on the free to attend event, please visit
