Volunteer and Mentor Scheme


All IP&SEN SIG committee members are volunteers and give freely of their time to organise and manage events and publications for our members. At our events we sometimes need extra hands to help organise things. If you’d like to go on our register of potential volunteers, please write to the [email protected] to express your interest. We are also always interested to hear your ideas for future activities.

Introducing the IP&SEN Mentor Scheme

We are proud to present our mentor scheme, open for all SIG members and also to participants of our pre-conference event, so tell your friends!

  • Send us a brief description of your situation/needs and we’ll put you directly in touch with a suitable mentor who can offer advice and suggestions.
  • Please remember your mentor is a real person – with a job and commitments – so he or she will not always be able to get back to you immediately, but they will be there to support you whenever they can.
  • Of course every situation and student with SEND is different, so your mentor will not be able to make a formal assessment or offer “one size fits all” solutions.
  • However, mentors WILL be there to suggest tips, resources, books, to help you find the necessary local specialists to help you, to role play difficult conversations with you. Basically – WE’LL BE THERE FOR YOU.

If you would like the support of a mentor – or if you would like to offer to be a mentor – then please contact us at [email protected].
