Driving Inclusion: holistic CPD programmes for SENCos and literacy leaders

Introducing DYT’s new Driving Inclusion System – two intensive, comprehensive, and evidence-based professional development programmes aimed at improving SEND provision, literacy progress and outcomes for learners with literacy difficulties and SEND.  

At DYT, we believe that the key to truly inclusive education is in the hands of the school’s workforce. The Driving Inclusion system offers impactful, long-term training for key practitioners found in every school – the SENCo and literacy leaders. 

The Strategic SENCo

A comprehensive programme with six evidence-based modules. Each module aims to address a unique challenge faced by SENCos and inclusion leads in both primary and secondary settings. 

  • Six week programme
  • Autumn term cohort starts 20th September 2021
  • Live sessions weekly (not inclusive of half-term)
  • £550 per person / £900 for 2

Creating Champions for Literacy Difficulties

An action research programme comprised of six modules which challenge the participant’s understanding of inclusion and disadvantage in order to improve literacy. Ideal for all practitioners with a responsibility for literacy.

  • Six week programme
  • Autumn term cohort starts 4th October 2021
  • Three ‘live’ sessions – see schedule below for dates
  • £550 per person / £900 for 2

How the programmes work

Both Driving Inclusion programmes are hosted on DYT’s new professional learning hub and offer a blended approach to learning running over six weeks. Participants will work at their own pace through six self-directed modules, guided by regular ‘live’ interactive sessions led by our consultant teachers.  

  • Six weekly modules  
  • ‘Live’ and recorded sessions to fit flexibly into any work schedule
  • Hiatus over half-terms/academic holidays 
  • Weekly assignments and feedback to check progress 
  • Peer-to-peer collaboration and feedback with other participants 
  • Curated resources and guides to download and keep 
  • Access to all content and discussion boards for 12 weeks

Why learn with DYT?

Practical strategies: 

All of DYT’s professional development services are built around easily-applicable and practical strategies and advice. Participants will be able to reflect and implement new strategies in their settings from day one.

Whole-school approach: 

Your whole school will benefit from our strategies, frameworks and guidance. Participants will discover how to effectively work with both internal and external stakeholders to ensure that SEND support is transformed across their setting.

Improve outcomes for all of your learners: 

The SEND-friendly practices shared in the programmes can be used in the classroom to support all learners, not just those with identified support needs.
