Our SEND Portal was created by South Tyneside Council to support Early Years, Schools, Colleges, Governors, Teaching Assistants and many more who are working in and across our settings in South Tyneside.
All our training events and handouts are in the portal.
Research and training
We are building up research material to promote settings to actively engage in action research and enquiry in their settings.
Our training is very popular with over 90 staff attending many of the sessions and our feedback is excellent! Staff are really excited about this approach and can access all these resources and ideas at a touch of a button.
We are actively promoting the sharing of practice across our settings. We have groups that specialise in Early Years - those that are in Private, Voluntary and Independent providers (PVIs), Children Centres, Nursery classes and Nursery Schools. Those that specialise in Secondary and Post 16 and those that cover all ages.
We have just run two really successful training sessions for Teaching Assistants and more are planned for the Summer Term.
