Written by Independent SupportDate 18 Aug 2014

Independent Support have produced a series of fact sheets as part of the training provided to Independent Supporters.

This fact sheet sets out the particular requirements and considerations for SEN support in further education under the SEND Code of Practice. The Children and Families Act extends a requirement to provide support for young people whose needs are not so significant as to require an EHC Plan to providers of further education. 

This fact sheet sets out the key basics to understanding how this new approach should be delivered.
