LSIS seeks expressions of interest from learning providers for regional partnership working clusters to support the SEN and Disabilities Green Paper

Dear colleague

Here is an opportunity to get involved in work around the SEN Green Paper  Support and aspiration: A new approach to special educational needs and disability” (March 2011).

LSIS wants  to develop and support a regional cluster in each of the 9 regions in order to meet the commitment in the Green Paper to encourage “partnership working between independent specialist colleges, special schools and colleges. This will help spread knowledge, improve expertise, build capacity, and share delivery arrangements so that colleges and training providers can respond effectively to the needs of learners, employers and communities to whom they are increasingly accountable.” (para 3.18)

The attached expression of interest form sets out the background and  thinking to the project. Please read it carefully and if you are interested please fill in the form and return to viv.berkeley@lsis.org.uk  by close of business Friday 16th  December 2011. Any expressions of interest returned after this date will not be considered. Providers will receive a grant  of £2750 to support them with their project work. Please ensure you have capacity to participate prior to completing and submitting the form.
