SENDcast wins national award for its dedication to supporting children and young people with SEND!
SENDcast has collected the top prize for Publication at nasen’s sixth annual Awards. The SENDcast was put in the spotlight at a glittery ceremony at The Grand Hotel in Birmingham for its remarkable work in helping pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and learning differences thrive and achieve.
The Awards are hosted by nasen – the National Association for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities – and supported by sponsors Scanning Pens, who is also the awards headline sponsor, Axcis Education, and official awards media partner, Schools Week. nasen is the leading membership charity that supports children and young people with SEND to reach their full potential, whilst being a champion, friend and protector of the SEND workforce.
Scooping nasen’s Award for Publication (David Ryan), the SENDcast was recognised for the easy, accessible way it keeps listeners up to date with SEND policy changes and best practice, improving the knowledge of SENCOs, teachers and anyone working or living with children and young adults with SEND.
Powered by SEND assessment provider B Squared, the podcast was created in response to feedback from schools, which reported that there was little or no training, and limited guidance available, about SEND. The SENDcast has since released more than 110 episodes and counting, attracting over 110,000 downloads to date, and featuring a range of experts and topics.
SENDcast joins 17 other award winners, judged by a panel of leading professionals with a wealth of experience in education and SEND – as well as individuals with lived experience.
“We are extremely grateful to nasen for the recognition of the SENDcast and the fantastic speakers who join us weekly to share their knowledge. I started the SENDcast so everyone could access free training and guidance in all areas of SEND, I feel we have achieved this and will continue to do so.”
