Childcare.co.uk working with nasen to support professionals working in Early Years

12th May 2017


Childcare.co.uk has been chosen by nasen as a partner to help deliver an exciting new project which aims to improve the outcomes for more than 50,000 children in early years’ settings across the country.

nasen will receive just over £315,000 from the Department for Education as part of their success in a bid to deliver the project.

The successful bid will see nasen lead the way in providing crucial support and training to those working in all kinds of early years’ settings including nurseries, reception classes so that they can begin to identify and support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

Talking more about the bid, Dr Adam Boddison, Chief Executive for nasen said: “Here at nasen, we are committed to providing the most effective and relevant support for all those working with children and young people with SEND. Over the last 25 years, our knowledge and expertise has enabled us to support thousands of SEND professionals from a range of sectors, and thanks to this extra funding, we are delighted that we can now put even more resource into ensuring that the needs of children aged 0-5 years are met”.

As part of the project, nasen will look to provide a series of informative webcasts, useful resources and a training package, as well as facilitate a number of groups that will come together to reflect on best practice. To do this, they will work with partners Nursery World and Childcare.co.uk.

The project, which will also support an increase in the proportion of early year’s settings who offer places (including free entitlement) to children with SEND is already underway.
