Who are we ?

Inclusive Learning North, led by Zena Martin, provides high quality support, training and consultancy to schools providing for 3-11 year-olds in the north of England.

Our Inclusion Forums are ever-popular, both with the number of schools taking part and the strength of voice it has to enable positive development in schools’ inclusive practice and the products and services provided to support them. As Director of Inclusive Learning North, Zena seeks to bring to the Inclusion Forums the best research, practice, resources and expertise in both SEND and wider aspects of inclusion, from around the UK and beyond.
