The Tes SEN Show is an essential part of the education calendar for networking, sharing ideas, and sourcing the latest resources. Over the past 12 months, the SEND community has remained connected and informed through a number of virtual events, including the SEN Show Series webinars and Tes SEN Show Virtual. Whilst these were a huge success, nothing quite replaces the incredible atmosphere, peer-to-peer networking opportunities, and hands-on interaction with resources than at a live show.
This year, the show’s overarching theme is neurodiversity and the social model of disability. CPD seminars from Professor Amanda Kirby, Jane Friswell, Alison Knowles and more will unpack the term ‘neurodiversity’ and explore strategies to help schools and settings celebrate our differences. Professor Amanda Kirby will also be delivering the free-to-attend opening keynote on Friday 8th October. Joining Professor Kirby for the Friday opening keynote panel discussion entitled ‘Neurodiversity and the social model of disability. What difference does it make?’ will be Andre Imich, SEN and Disability Professional Advisor from the Department for Education, Dame Christine Lenehan, Director of the Council for Disabled Children (CDC) and Marijke Milkes, Headteacher and NAHT National Executive Member.
As always, the CPD seminar programme covers a range of essential topics to improve learning outcomes for young learners, with additional themes including mental health and well-being, the SEND review, and speech, language and communication needs (SLCN), and much more. CPD seminars cost just £17 +VAT when you book before Friday 30th July 2021, with the price increasing to £20 +VAT thereafter.
The Tes SEN Show is delighted to provide a number of free-to-attend sessions led by SEND advocates and our top exhibitors. Throughout both days of the show, attendees can sit in on practical demonstrations of the latest resources in the Exhibitor Workshop Theatre and Exhibitor Spotlight Theatre and learn from the experiences of parents and carers in the Parent, Carer and Teacher Forum. Plus, TeachMeet, the popular meet-up for teachers to share ideas for developing support for learners with SEND, will return on Friday 8th October.
This year, the Tes SEN Show will be sponsored by LGfL – The National Grid for Learning, who attendees can hear from in the Exhibitor Workshop Theatre and visit amidst the buzzing exhibition at stand 189. Exhibiting alongside LGfL are the sector’s leading resource and service providers, displaying the latest resources for attendees to browse. Exhibitors will be just as excited to welcome back visitors to the Business Design Centre on 8-9 October 2021, with many offering exclusive discounts and giveaways.
