This year saw the third SEN Jigsaw Conference take place in Leek, Staffs in April. The event brought together parents, teachers, and SENCOs to listen to useful plenary talks and take part in workshops that all focused on aspects of Special Educational Needs.
The video below will give you an insight into how the SEN Jigsaw Conference went:
During the past three years, I have received a number of requests to bring the SEN Jigsaw Conference to different towns and cities across the UK, I would love to do this but am lacking the resources to do so. So I decided to do something slightly different which could still be incredibly useful to everyone that is interested in the SEN Jigsaw Conference.
My new idea is called the SEN Jigsaw Local. The aim of these local events is to bring parents together for an evening to listen to two SEN focused talks as well as have an opportunity to speak with other parents who are having similar experiences to you. My hope is to build 'SEN Jigsaw Local Communities" around the UK.
On the 19th September we will have our first one in Cambridge at the fantastic CB2 Bistro which is close to the centre of Cambridge. There is free and paid parking nearby and it is about a ten minute walk from Cambridge Station.
We have limited our numbers to about 20 and tickets are now available on EventBrite.
