Our Specialist Teaching team provides a service for children, young people and those who support them.

We also offer advice and training for settings and parents on how best to meet the needs of students with SEND. 

Our Specialist Teachers are all highly experienced teachers with additional qualifications in one or more areas of SEND. They work with the other professionals who are in contact with the child and their family to help that child or young person to achieve their learning goals.

Our team have a selection of qualifications in order that we can best meet students needs. For example, within the team we have Specialist Teachers who have Level 7 qualifications, APCs, PATOSS membership, CCET, and post graduate Autism qualifications – this ensures that CEPP can offer the best placed professional for each case.

We provide specialist assessments for children and young people based on their individual needs.
