MAKING CONNECTIONS

The Centre for Teaching and Learning Research (CTLR) is engaged with education in all its pedagogical and social complexity. The interests of members span local, national and international contexts and a range of formal and informal settings, running from Early Years to Higher Education and including Initial Teacher Education. 

The Centre's strapline is  Making Connections, reflecting its focus on bringing research, theory, policy and practice together with a view to promoting positive change. Consistent with this, we aim to foster the development of more holistic, contextualised  and systemic understandings of education in all its many forms.

DEVELOPING GOOD PRACTICE IN INCLUSION

Louise Gazeley was  recently invited to speak at an event hosted by the SEN Policy Research Forum at St Alban's Centre, London on the theme of  Exclusions, Barriers to Admission and Quality of Mainstream Provision for Children and Young People with SEND: What can be done? The event was attended by an  audience of stakeholders, policy-makers and academics. 

Louise's talk was called: When it comes to school exclusion processes who is accountable and for what? Other invited speakers included Jules Daulby (Transparency on Exclusions), and Nicola Furey and James Roach from Inclusive Multi-Academy Trust, Watford.

The event ended with a small group discussion around how best to promote inclusion and reduce exclusion. The three talks given on the day are included in a report produced by the Policy Research Forum.
