When: Monday, May 22, 2023, 3:30 PM - 5:00 PMWhere: Toynbee Hall, 28 Commercial Street, London, E1 6LS
Join us for this collaborative event, held in conjunction with the Disability Policy Centre, to discuss how to create a truly inclusive education system that works for all disabled young people.
In March 2023, the UK Government published its SEND and Alternative Provision Improvement Plan, which builds on last year's Green Paper and aims to fix the current, unsatisfactory system. But how might we go further: understanding what best practice is for all disabled children and young people, and reimagining what the system might look like through more fundamental and radical change?
At this collaborative event, hosted by the Mile End Institute at Queen Mary University of London and the Disability Policy Centre, we will be discussing how to create a truly inclusive education system that works for all disabled children and young people. It will bring together academics, policymakers and third sector organisations to address this question and build on the recent publication of the Disability Policy Centre's The State of the Nation in SEND Education: England report.
Join us to hear from leading experts to understand what such an inclusive system might look like, from early years to higher education, identify the barriers to achieving those goals, and how these might be overcome.
This event is free and open to all, so please feel free to share. It will be held in the Lecture Hall at Toynbee Hall on Commercial Street in Whitechapel. As well as a panel discussion and wider debate, there will be time for networking. The objective of this session is to create new relationships and collaborations which can inform the development of new research.
