Kate Bradley - Programme Leader, UCL Institute of Education
Location: London and across the UK
Having been a senior leader in a large primary school (Head of Autism and Inclusion) I now work in the Centre for Inclusive Education at IOE, University College London. I am the co-author of the ‘101 Inclusive and SEN Lessons' series of six books. I am also a regular contributor for Teach Primary and SENDCo magazines.
I completed my Masters in Special and Inclusive Education at UCL Institute of Education. My dissertation was published in the peer-reviewed Education & Child Psychology Journal (June 2017).
In my consultancy work (The SEN Den), I have provided training and content to teachers in London for a recruitment agency. I am working with a premier league football club on developing their autism strategy and I have worked on the concept for a specialist playground for a new autism school.
I am available to deliver the Maximising the Practice of TAs training in London and across the UK.
