Transition

Together for Short Lives is launching a ground-breaking new Transition Awards Programme to fund innovative transition projects. There is an urgent need for new initiatives to transform the experience of young people with life-limiting conditions as they move from children's to adult services.

The Department for Education is seeking evidence on the experiences and outcomes of children and young people in residential special schools and colleges. Responses should be sent to Lenehan.Review@education.gov.uk by 17 March 2017.

An employer-led group has recommended action to help young people with SEND make the transition from education to employment. Action includes employers offering more supported internships, opening up apprenticeships to more young people with SEND, and better careers advice.

Report

In August 2012, the Ofsted survey ‘Progression post-16 for learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities’ found that transition arrangements for these learners to post-16 education and into adulthood were not fully effective. Schools, local authorities and other agencies did not work together sufficiently well to ensure that learners were adequately prepared for transition between school and post-16 provision. 

Three years on, this survey sought to evaluate how well further education and skills provision meets the needs and interests of young people aged between 16 and 25 with high levels of need. It also assessed the extent to which the early implementation of the Children and Families Act 2014 has enabled the sector to help these young people to succeed in education and prepare them for adult life.
