Our staff have well developed expertise in a wide range of areas. This together with excellent facilities and resources enables us to play a significant role in the network of services the Local Authority provides to meet the special educational needs of pupils in Gloucestershire.

Staff are able to provide advice and support for teachers and support workers of pupils with physical and learning difficulties in mainstream schools through Outreach and Training services.
