The events will take place in

Venue Cymru, Llandudno on 24 November 2015 9.00-13.00

  • Address via videolink from the Minister for Education and Skills;
  • Presentation on the draft Bill and wider reform package;
  • Workshops in relation to the consultation on the draft Bill;
  • Q&A session, with a panel consisting of representatives for Welsh Government and the Association of Directors of Education Wales

Workshops:

1. Definition of Additional Learning Needs and the 0-25 age range – Discussion on where the focus of the definition should be, age range and responsibility for post-16 provision

2. Individual Development Plans and increased participation by children and young people – Discussion on responsibilities around IDPs, and how to place the learner at the heart of the process

3. High aspirations and improved outcomes – Discussion on the role of Additional Learning Needs Co-ordinators and the educational placement of learners with ALN.

4. Collaboration and multi-agency working – Discussion on expectations of multi-agency collaboration, and the role of health boards in delivering provision included in IDPs.
