Top Tips for NQT’s &  SET’s:

How to hold an IEP meeting, and come out with some clear goals - and other ideas about effective communication with parents.

A 2019 NCSE research report found that newly qualified teachers felt underprepared for working collaboratively with parents.

This short webinar will walk you through some top tips for holding meetings, a handy format for an IEP meeting that also works well across most meeting settings, and ultimately, how to ensure that everyone leaves the meeting satisfied, and feeling a sense of achievement on behalf of the student in question.

‘I spent 5 years as an autism advisor on an outreach team in London, where I had to regularly either attend or host meetings for parents and often large multidisciplinary teams. Shy by nature, I had to get over myself fast, and get on with the job in hand. Having attended many successful meetings, and some disastrous ones, I have definitely picked up lots of tips along the way’. Claire
