Project-Whole School SEND

The DfE is funding a ‘SEN/D Workforce Development [DSWD]:  Project-Whole School SEND’.

This is an important opportunity for you as a practitioner and schools in general to influence and inform how their needs in this area are to be met.

Thank you for taking the time to read this carefully. The focus of this invitation is for colleagues working in all phases of schooling in England only.

A survey has been created to give insight into the factors affecting your engagement with special needs and/or disability [SEN/D] related training and Continuing Professional Development [CPD] in school/ setting; how your school/ setting identifies, accesses, uses and follows up on training /CPD; who makes those decisions and the impact they have on the SENCO, Head teacher and teaching staff roles, workload and activity.

This survey takes no more than 20 minutes to complete. To complete the survey please follow this link:


The organisation(s) sending you this invitation will not see your individual answers and will not be involved in processing or analysing the information / answers you give. This will be done by the research team at UCL IOE Centre for Inclusive Education.

You are not asked to identify yourself or your school/ setting in the questionnaire: your contribution will be entirely anonymous and participation is voluntary.

Your opinions and experiences are really important to us.

If you have any questions please email us at: wssen-d@ucl.ac.uk

Thank you very much for taking the time to complete the survey!
