Myerscough College continues to lead the way in inclusive provision for learners with special educational needs.
Myerscough is taking part in a long-term programme in conjunction with the Education & Training Foundation aimed at providing the best outcomes for such learners.
As part of this SEND Workforce Development Programme, a video has been produced to examine the College’s strategic priorities for inclusion.
The below video features Myerscough leaders, governors, managers, tutors and learners explaining the impact strong leadership can have in creating a whole-organisation approach to improving outcomes for learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities:

The SEND project is driven by the College’s Inclusive Learning team, with the overall aim to develop provision and good practice. Staff involved in the Myerscough SEND project are experts in their field and provide high quality leadership of the project as well as development, information, advice and guidance. This ensures that learners with SEND are fully engaged in their studies and have ownership of their learner journey.
The Myerscough College SEND project has been recognised as one where best practice has been undertaken and as a result shared with other educational institutions in the post-16 sector across the country. Myerscough College has a strong reputation for its provision for learners with SEND in the post-16 education sector and has worked on a number of key components of the project.
Specifically, this has included the development of a free, online self-assessment tool, which allows education providers and local authorities to gauge their effectiveness of supporting young people with special educational needs and disabilities, as well as development of a good practice guide and also the delivery of CPD (Continuous Professional Development) events, with the aim to enhance the knowledge, skills and understanding of teaching practitioners and tutors.
