SPECIAL Educational Needs schools have faced numerous extra challenges during the pandemic around how safety protocols and the design of spaces impact on students’ wellbeing.

An upcoming webinar, hosted by The Royal Society of Ulster Architects (RSUA) and HLM Architects, will delve deep into the design-centred solutions to these challenges. The webinar will bring design experts, school representatives and educational officials together for a vital discussion on how design can improve learner spaces, and enhance the student experience.

Featuring a live Q&A and in-depth panel discussion, thought leaders in the field will share key insights that will help shape design principles of SEN Schools.
