SENJIT (Special Educational Needs Joint Initiative for Training)

We have more than 20 years experience nationally and internationally in supporting professionals and policy makers in education to have the knowledge, skills and attributes in order to contribute to better outcomes for children and young people with special education needs and disabilities (SEND). We are a national centre of professional learning and knowledge exchange for educational professionals concerned with the learning and teaching of children and young people with SEND by:  

  • offering high-quality research-informed and practice-orientated accredited and non-accredited learning and teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels
  • having strong partnership links with Local Authorities and increasingly with federations and alliances
  • facilitating a range of knowledge exchange activities that include IOE academics and practitioners
  • undertaking research that supports the professional learning and knowledge exchange for educational professionals concerned with the learning and teaching of children and young people with SEND.
