The Department for Education has issued updated advice to Further Education colleges and specialists in post-16 education on implementation of the SEND reforms.

This guidance sets out:

  • a summary of changes to the statutory framework for SEN, including new duties for FE providers 
  • an outline timeline for implementation;
  • key questions principals and other senior leaders of colleges and special post-16 institutions may find useful in thinking about implementing the reforms;
  • resources and support that can be accessed to support the cultural and system change these reforms require.
