SNJ in Conversation podcast: Will Quince in our hot seat discussing the #SENDReview Green Paper

Yesterday, Renata and I sat down virtually with Will Quince MP, Minister for Children and Families for an episode of our video/podcast, SNJ in Conversation.

As you know there is a webinar we are facilitating scheduled for your questions next week, so register now if you haven't we took the opportunity to put a few questions face to virtual face in a more sedate manner. We've tried to ask questions that we won't necessarily cover in the webinar, but inevitably will be some cross-over. If you have a burning question, do put it forward.

We spoke for 45 minutes, covering, mandatory mediation, SENDIAS, accountability, teacher training, digital plans, and much more. This was intended as a conversation rather than a grilling, and we had to pre-submit questions, but we hope it's made you keen to hear more for the webinar.

Mr Quince did concede that the 2014 reforms were good, and nothing in this consultation is set in stone, including mandatory mediation that no one wants -- so it's very important that you respond to the consultation, either via the DfE official route, our own single-question options, or perhaps via a charity you are involved with. He also outlined what will happen after the consultation.
