We are delighted to be back in the Middle East for the 2nd year of this important event!

Why is this conference relevant?

For schools across the Middle East, ensuring students of determination needs are met and promoting wellbeing is being scrutinised more closely than ever before.

How are you ensuring that all staff are taking responsibility for students with SEND and that quality first teaching is happening in every classroom?

Do you know how to promote the wellbeing of staff and pupils, as well as supporting their mental health?
