Upcoming Training and Information events

 

The SIAS (Southwark Information, Advice and Support) team are hosting a week of virtual sessions for young people with SEND (special education needs and disabilities).

 

There will be different providers giving talks throughout the week, providing information about a range of education and training options that you may find interesting.
