Opportunity for five local areas in the UK to explore Supporting Young People with SEND 19-25

Opportunity for five local areas in the UK to explore Supporting Young People with SEND 19-25

DfE is funding us to work on a unique project with five local areas (a local authority and its partners) to explore the 19 to 25 yr old pathways for young people with SEND.

The project aims to improve joint working across education, health and social are (children and adult services) to agree a shared vision of good life outcomes and when it is appropriate to cease an Education, Health and Care plan for young people with SEND over19.

Applications are now open. Local areas who wish to be considered for the project will need to download and complete the application form and return it to  kirstin.hawkes@ndti.org.uk by the closing date of 22nd June 2018.

This will be a unique opportunity to look at pressing issues, including;

  • The 16-25 curriculum, study programmes and Supported Internships
  • Education, Health and Care plans - outcomes, destinations and the criteria for ceasing a plan
  • The interface between the Children and Families Act, the Care Act, the Equalities Act and the Mental Capacity Act
  • Developing and implementing pathways for Preparing for Adulthood

Each of the five areas will be allocated six days support from the Preparing for Adulthood Team to work through the issues that are most important to them. The resulting learning will then be published in a national practice guide.
