  • £10 Asda voucher
  • Lunch and refreshments during the session
  • Travel Reimbursement, if necessary (please contact us for details)

Booking is essential. To join this session, please book via EventBrite.

What Can You Expect During the Audit?

  • Attendees will be asked either to work individually or in pairs, whichever you’re most comfortable with.
  • Each person/pair will be given a case study showing information about a (hypothetical) child or young person with Special Educational Needs and/or Disability (SEND) – age, diagnosis and/or identified need, school situation, family circumstances, etc.
  • Each person/pair will use the Local Offer website to try and find certain information that the family might try and look for, as listed in the case study.
  • We will all do 2 to 4 case studies each, depending on timings that we will decide on the day.
