Welcome to OLT
We are a provider of ‘just-in-time’ intermediate continuous professional development (CPD) in Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), which supports SENCos/SENDCos, teachers, teaching support staff and senior leaders to narrow the gap in attainment and improve life chances for all pupils with SEND. Our approach supports the information needs of the team around the child, and is used by school governors, parents and carers, therapists and other members of the community.
I think online learning is now a great option for schools. I saw that there was a need and this was the perfect solution.
