Susan Briggs - Lead Consultant, Millgate Education
Location: UK wide
For over 25 years, variously as teacher, Oftsed inspector, specialist member of the SEN and Disability Tribunal, school improvement partner, consultant and adviser, I have championed the education and participation of children with SEND. I have written several specialist books and publications for teachers, including Meeting SEND in Primary Classrooms and Meeting SEND in Secondary Classrooms.
I was a national lead for the Achievement for All programme, and a Regional Adviser for the Early Support programme for the Council for Disabled Children. I now work as an independent education and leadership consultant.
I am available to deliver the Maximising the Practice of TAs training across the UK.
