This short paper, from the IPPR  considers whether the additional support that is provided to children and young people with learning disabilities helps them properly prepare for adulthood, and considers how it might have to change to better achieve this.

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is partnering with the Careers and Enterprise Company to recruit Enterprise Advisers for a national network that provides careers support within schools and colleges. CIPD says that the programme provides an opportunity for individuals to use their expertise to bring work to life and to shape the workplace of the future.

BASE member, The Castle School, welcomed OFSTED recently for a one day inspection with the outcome being that they remain Outstanding. The Castle School in Newbury was awarded the Team of the Year Award by BASE in 2017.

One of the key lines of enquiry was how the curriculum supported students appropriately to prepare them for adulthood which included an employment focus. 

In the report, OFSTED wrote:

The Careers and Enterprise Company, an employer-led and government-backed organisation that aims to increase employer engagement with young people, has announced that two-fifths of its £4.2 million annual fund will be targeted at programmes supporting children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), looked-after children and care leavers, and young people from gypsy, Roma and traveller backgrounds.

Ofsted has published its 2017-18 annual report. The report highlights concerns raised by Ofsted’s local area SEND inspections. These have shown that:

The Guardian is reporting that children and young people with special needs are being failed in almost half of areas in England inspected under new rules.

Under a system of inspections introduced in 2016, the education watchdog Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission have so far visited 68 local areas to assess whether they meet the needs of those aged 0 to 25 with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

This toolkit was created so that Enterprise Coordinators and Enterprise Advisers can better understand the career landscape for young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). The publishers worked with experts who support young people with SEND to explore what positive outcomes for young people with SEND look like, and what can be achieved by working in partnership and drawing on best practice from around the country.

This quick guide aims to help health commissioners and providers tackle the challenges involved in implementing the joint commissioning of services for children and young people with special educational needs and disability (SEND) introduced by Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014.

The guide contains links to a wide range of resources around commissioning, transition planning and co-production.

NDTi is establishing three collaborative action learning networks to support greater working across local authority and post-16 providers. The SEND reforms have brought about a number of opportunities for the post-16 sector but have equally meant local authorities and post-16 providers face making many systemic changes that can create challenges and cause some barriers to effective partnership working.
