Procurement has launched for the London SEND Leadership Programme!
Leadership poses a significant challenge for the SEND workforce. Whilst London is identified as the top-performing region in OfSTED’s Annual Report, with 67% of areas not requiring a written statement of action, Leadership has been identified as an area where we want to develop greater capacity for the future. Local Authority Directors of Children’s Services and Health partners have highlighted the need to build more capacity and capability across and SEND Leaders and to equip aspiring leaders.
Recognising these challenges, LIIA has pinpointed the need for a system-wide leadership development initiative. Such a programme would offer substantial support to current change leaders and simultaneously foster future capacity, whilst mitigating identified risks. The leadership landscape is becoming increasingly complex, requiring leaders who can lead significant change strategically and across multi-agency settings.
We will be running an exciting London SEND Leadership Programme from Spring 2024 for current and aspiring leaders, in partnership with Health and Parent/Carer representatives. Supporting 90 leaders across three cohorts, the programme will enhance leadership capability and capacity within local authorities, NHSE, Integrated Care Systems, Health Provider Collaboratives, and the London NNPCF.
