People chatting and networking in the main room at the Natspec Conference

21 & 22 June 2022 Jurys Inn, Hinckley Island, Leicestershire

The Natspec National Conference returns to Hinckley Island on 21 & 22 June 2022. The conference is the largest specialist event for FE professionals who work with students with Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans and/or students funded through the high needs system. 

After an extended period of limited face-to-face encounters, we will be celebrating the power of collaboration. Just as colleges achieve the best outcomes for young people with SEND when they take an inter-disciplinary approach, we believe that bringing professionals together raises the standards of SEND provision across the FE sector.

The two-day programme is packed with opportunities for SEND professionals to learn together, from one another and from experts from within and beyond our sector. Across the keynote speeches and workshops, you will hear how partnership-working and learning exchange has been a driving factor in creating new opportunities and raising aspirations for our students.

The conference will also give delegates the chance to hear from policy makers and reflect on changes to the SEND landscape resulting from the government’s SEND review. Together, we will discuss and debate how further education providers can ensure that young people with SEND can achieve their aspirations and step forward with confidence into a bright future.
