Commissioning statement between Young People Service and SEND Team: The Preparing for Adulthood (PfA) agenda
Young People’s Services (YPS) are currently in the process of working collaboratively with the SEND team to ensure that every SEND pupil in Years 9, 11 and 12/13 receive impartial information, advice and guidance at every point of transition. This will be achieved through the Preparing for Adulthood (PfA) agenda which allows young people to access specialist support and guidance to help them prepare them for employment, independent living (including housing) and participation in society and should provide access to careers advice where needed.
YPS will be delivering this service to all young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) in Years 11 and 13 in 2018-19.
This service will then be rolled out to Years 9, 11 and 12/13 in 2019-20.
