Buckinghamshire Council are training Young SEND Inspectors during the Easter Holiday and there are other opportunities too.

SEND Young Inspectors aged 12-25 years
Young Inspectors are trained to participate and review local group and activities. We have a bank of activities and groups ready to be inspected. Young people will receive Amazon vouchers for every inspection they do and an AQA accreditation. We have training coming up on Wednesday 20th April 10-12:30pm at Buckinghamshire County Offices, Aylesbury

SEND Young Inspector Training April

Shout Out For SEND monthly group for young people aged 11 – 16 years
This fun social group runs in Aylesbury, Amersham and High Wycombe. At these sessions we work on building confidence, self esteem and social skills. As well as this we create opportunities for the young people to get their voice heard and make positive changes to the lives of other young people with SEND. These sessions are on Mondays 4:30pm – 6:30pm.

Shout Out Reps aged 12-25 years
Shout Out Reps represent their school, college or community by meeting virtually once a month. Our Reps create videos to present to Buckinghamshire’s Integrated Services Board, which is a meeting of senior decision-makers in the Council – you can watch an example of one that was made on co-production here: Tips on involving children and young people with SEND – YouTube . Everyone receives a welcome pack when they join as well as Amazon vouchers and an accreditation after their third meeting.
