Covid-19 has disproportionally impacted children and adults with special educational needs and disabilities – it is therefore more important than ever for museums and heritage sites to confidently include a SEND-friendly learning offer within their programmes.

Who is it for?
This course is for experienced learning professionals wishing to develop their SEND practice, create change within their organisations or freelance work to develop best practice and advocate for SEND in museums. Participants will become members of a peer learning group focused on discussing and workshopping various concepts related to SEND-inclusive learning.

Who runs the course?SEND in Museums, GEM
This four-week online course run by SEND parent and Museum Development Officer Sam Bowen will explore the need for improved SEND engagement and how to create and adapt your learning offer to meet the needs of this audience.
