SEND training and workshops

Practitioner training

The Bromley SEND Training Collaborative was set up in September 2018 as a partnership between Bromley’s Teaching School Alliances, the Bromley Schools Collegiate, Special Schools, additional resource provisions, the SEMH outreach team, the Clinical Commissioning Group and the local authority. 

We have worked together to plan and implement a coherent training offer that will develop the skills, confidence and expertise of our workforce, across the early years, primary and secondary sector, in meeting the diverse needs of children with special educational needs and disability.
