In the last six months the focus of much of the learning and skills sector policy has been on disabled learners. In December 2006 we pass the deadline for each public body, including education providers, to have their first Disability Equality Scheme in place. The Learning and Skills Council (LSC), Department for Education and Skills (DfES), Department of Health (DoH), and other government departments are all working towards strategies for disabled people.
This conference gives managers, practitioners and policy makers in the learning and skills sector a unique opportunity to discuss all these developments and consider how they might impact on provision and on learners.
