In a nutshell ~ the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) reforms

Special Educational Needs and Disability reforms


What are the SEND reforms?


The Special Educational Needs and Disability reforms (SEND reforms) mean that local health services (clinical commissioning groups) and local authorities must work together to integrate services across the 0-25 age range. The new system is about offering help at the earliest possible point, with children and young people with SEN and their parents or carers fully involved in decisions about the support they need. The reforms are set out in the Children and Families Act 2014, and the new SEND Code of Practice (0-25 years).

Work Experience ~ What’s going wrong?


Work Experience

“It helps young people find out more about the working world, can give insight into what careers and jobs are available and what they need to do to get there. Crucially, young people tend to listen more to employers than to teachers or parents so their interventions, such as careers talks, work tasters and advice and guidance, can be very powerful.” CIPD

Research in 2012 by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) found that the share of full-time learners at 16-17 years old who combine work with their learning has been declining steadily from 40 per cent in the late 1990s to around 20 per cent in 2011. This indicates that young people in the UK are leaving education increasingly less experienced in the working world.
