The iEOA is working in partnership with NatSIP to help support the exams office community on information, training and materials that will assist them in dealing with issues related to special needs requirements for students taking exams in schools and colleges across the UK. 


The Sensory Learning Hub has been created by the National Sensory Impairment Partnership (NatSIP) to provide a centrally held trusted resource for all things related to sensory impairment. 


The content has been collated by specialists in the sensory impairment field with a view to supporting the frontline workforce who are working with children and young people who have sensory impairment.


Most of the Sensory Learning Hub is open to all, but we encourage you to register on the site for full access to everything we have to offer.  Registration is free, and open to anyone.  A walkthrough/howto on the registration process is pdf here .


As part of the relationship the iEOA will:

  • Promote the NatSIP on its website, e-newsletter, publications & events
  • Promote NatSIP to all Network groups through its online Network Tool
  • Promote NatSIP through the iEOA Exam SEND Service & CPD programmes

In return NatSIP will:

  • Provide help, support, information & guidance that facilitates greater access to exams for SEND students
  • Promote the iEOA on its website, in publications and events where appropriate
  • Share and exchange information appropriate to serving this area through its Exam SEND Service

In this partnership agreement the shared objective is to provide additional support and help to members in this very complex area. The iEOA seeks to provide the opportunity to members to explore and develop products and services that might not have become available through other avenues. The services provided by NatSIP to the exam community are invaluable in helping to support our members and we welcome this closer association.
