NADP, or the National Association of Disability Officers (NADO) as we were at the time, held our inaugural conference, ‘Raising the Standard’ in 1999 and so this year is to be our 20th Anniversary event.

The focus of the NADP Annual Conference in 2019 is:

‘Enhancing the Student Experience – the full lifecycle’

Students have different needs at different stages requiring a flexible and evolving approach to assist them to feel connected, have a sense of purpose, feel resourceful and competent and achieve.

Our membership and associates dynamically respond to changes in education, systems and student needs with positivity and creativity. We will be showcasing some of these ideas and other examples of good practice at this year’s conference.
