Read here​ about the impact our Inclusion Forums have had in schools.

An increasing number of schools and clusters now prefer to invite Zena into their school to deliver courses, staff training, INSET days or a package of support directly with staff……for further details please visit here 

Our aim is to provide all attending delegates of our Inclusion Forums with the slideshows, handouts and resources required, so that you can deliver the same course back in your own school. Indeed, many delegates have reported successfully doing so. We achieve this by providing delegates with access to hidden web pages that contain all the necessary resources to download.

Our copyright terms are that attending delegates are free to use all the materials provided within their own school only. Please contact us if you would like to share with clusters of schools, teaching school alliances or MATs.
