SEND Training

At the heart of what DTSA is about is exploring the best education for all children in all schools.  After an initial survey with local SENCO’s it was found that specialist training in this area was lacking and that SENCO’s were burning out too quickly with a feeling that they were unsupported in their roles with specialist training.

To encourage teachers and SENDCO’s to stay in the profession within our local area is a priority for DTSA and so we are funding SEND training needs across the East Midlands area to help keep these valuable professional supported in their roles to help maintain teacher retention rates.

The following schools have been supported by DTSA:
