There is much uncertainty at the moment amongst parents and the professionals who work with pupils with special educational needs on what the current legal position is regarding the new health, education and care legislation being brought in by the current Government and what the timescales are for the changes.
We are delighted that Clive Rawlings is one of the four keynote speakers at the Towards a Positive Future conference to be held in Newbury on 16th June 2012 and he will be able to ensure that delegates have the up to date position.
Clive is a UK leading specialist education law counsel, who advocates in the High Court, County Court and Special Education Needs and Disability Tribunal. His previous career as a teacher and education officer for children with special needs, has given him particular insight into the educational provision that is required to support children with special education needs and enable them to access the curriculum.
Clive is also Panel Counsel to the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
Clive’s talk will include an update of the Green Paper pathfinder site results and the up to date legal position for parents needing to appeal the content of their child’s Statement of Special Educational Needs to SENDIST and the implications for the professionals involved in supporting these children following The Education Act 2011, Health and Social Care Act 2012 and SEN reforms.
Clive has been at the forefront of education law and public law since 1994.
