Abstract

Teachers are increasingly being encouraged and/or are under statutory requirements to collaborate in multi-agency procedures for dealing with vulnerable and at-risk children and children with special educational needs. A main aim of this project was to help Initial Teacher Training (ITT) tutors and school-based mentors to support and prepare trainee teachers to for develop the necessary skills to engage in multi- agency working and to prepare them coordinating and managing multi-agency working, as necessary, within their professional teaching career. The key rationale for this project, therefore, was to translate the evidence base from research on multi-agency action and the co-ordination of assessment for children and young people with special educational needs into practice-based learning materials. The University is engaged in research and development in many professional disciplines and service sectors involving children and young people, for example, Health, Social Services and Youth Justice and we have consulted with colleagues across the university throughout the life of this project.
