2021 NASS Annual Conference

The 2021 NASS Annual Residential Conference will be taking place on Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th October 2021 at The Principal Hotel, Station Road, York, YO24 1AA.

NASS Conference is a two day event and is tailored specifically for the special needs sector.  Come and join us to hear news, share views and network.  We will be joined by Ofsted and will have a session on Behaviour Hubs.  We are currently finalising the programme and further details of other sessions will be added as they are confirmed.

The Principal Hotel is located right next door to York mainline railway station and just two hours by rail from London. It’s also a 20 minute drive to the A1 and has links to major motorway networks. Leeds Bradford International Airport is a 40 minute drive.

We are preparing for conference on the premiss that, in line with the planned easing of restrictions, it will be a face-to-face event. However should there be any further restrictions in place at that time which will prevent the event going ahead “live” then it will revert to an online event, to ensure we have some way of coming together this year.
