Staff within our Trust schools have well developed expertise in a range of areas which, together with excellent facilities and resources, enables is to play a significant role in the network of services the Local Authority provides to meet the special educational needs of pupils in Gloucestershire.
We are also proud to work with an established network of both SEND and Mainstream Early Years, Primary and Secondary practitioners from across Gloucestershire and the South West, providing opportunities for both support and collaboration.
SAND Training & Outreach aims to not only provide training and support for our own Trust schools, but also to identify and co-ordinate expertise using best practitioners to:
- Play a greater role in recruiting and training new entrants to the profession (Initial Teacher Training)
- Lead peer-to-peer professional and leadership development (Continuing Professional Development)
- Identify and develop leadership potential through succession planning and talent management
- Provide support for other settings and parents/carers
SAND Training & Outreach is a partner of both Odyssey Teaching School Hub and Balcarras Teaching School Hub. As well as being a member of the Strategic Boards for each, our role is to support development and implementation of Initial Teacher Training (ITT), Early Career Framework (ECF) and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) across Gloucestershire.
