Keynote Panel Discussion

Don't miss the the free opening keynote

Following on from the popularity and success of last year's free-to-attend keynote debate, this year's debate will focus on social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) difficulties in education.

Be part of this stimulating and engaging discussion which will explore government proposals on children's and young people's mental health and the pledge that every secondary school will be offered mental first aid training by 2020. Take the opportunity to put your questions to policy influencers, advocates and visionaries in the SEND arena. Our panel will give a brief update of their respective areas of expertise before discussing SEMH, the government's proposals, their impact on educational settings and the latest SEN issues affecting you and your practice.

The panel includes:

- Beverley Walters, chairperson and head of content, Tes SEN Show

- Andre Imich, SEN and disability professional advisor, DfE

- Hannah Kinsey, head of training and consultancy, YoungMinds

- Nell Nicholson, headteacher, Gloucester House School, accompanied by a student

- Lana Grant, specialist advisor and advocate for people with autism and their families.
