ERW is committed to delivering a fair and fully inclusive education system ensuring that all schools are equipped to support all learners in a manner which minimises obstacles and maximises the opportunities for reaching their full potential. ERW recognises that the highest performing education systems are those that combine equity with quality and that an inclusive education system benefits all learners. ERW will continue to develop the workforce so that schools can receive the necessary levels of support and challenge around inclusive practice.


A small team of Additional Learning Needs (ALN) transformation leads are responsible for supporting the effective implementation of the Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Act 2018 across Wales.  There are five transformation leads in total, all of whom will play a key role in delivering the ALN transformation programme and providing a strategic interface between delivery partners and the Welsh Government.  There are four Regional ALN transformation leads responsible for supporting local authorities, schools, early years settings and local health boards (LHBs) prepare for and implement the new system and one Further Education ALN transformation lead responsible for providing the same support to the further education (FE) sector.

The ALN Transformation Lead covering the ERW is Huw Davies.
