THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar is bringing together key policymakers and stakeholders to discuss the development and implementation of the Additional Learning Needs Code - focusing on governance, funding and regulation.
It takes place in the context of the Welsh Government’s public consultation into the ALN Code which will set out procedure and best practice - including for disagreement resolution, increased collaboration and remits of responsibility.
The seminar also comes as the Welsh Government releases the first in a series of guides to implementing the new ALN system, with the recent publication focusing on timeframes of implementation and the introduction of Individual Development Plans (IDPs). The discussion also takes place as debate begins on the general principles of an independent member’s Bill on autism, which will expand on the Welsh Government’s autism strategy.
Delegates will discuss the implications of key measures from the Welsh Government’s Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Act that sets out the legislative framework for ALN service delivery in Wales, including the ALN Transformation Programme which creates a unified system of ALN provision.
Those attending will also consider the potential challenges for implementing the Code, including the timetable for training and delivery, overcoming the barriers to effective service delivery and providing the necessary funding and governance to drive change - as well as its likely impact on the inspection of ALN provision.
