Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport.  Through this programme, over the past two years, 20 members of our staff have been funded to contribute to wider dialogues about SEND, for example through attending courses, or presenting at international conferences.  This has supported innovation across the Teaching School Alliance, informing the development of provision for learners with SEND more locally.  Through our participation in the Erasmus+ programme, we are connected to the latest research insights on learning disabilities, finding from neuroscience, and the latest breakthroughs in assistive technology.  This helps new evidence-based teaching methods reach our learners.

We are also proud to be one of only a handful of UK organisations to be awarded a significant amount of funding from the Erasmus+ programme, for a cross-sector large-scale project, for supporting young people with learning disabilities, age 14-25:

Our project ‘Imagining the Future: Connecting Young Europeans with Learning Disabilities to Supported Employment and Community’ will provide meaningful community-based learning opportunities, which will enable them to connect with others, socially, economically, locally and globally. It will also contribute to strategic dialogues about shaping special education provision, within the changing educational and economic landscape of 21st Century Europe.

The project has five core objectives known as the ‘IF Five’
