Progression post-16 for learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities

Date: 
Wed, 24/08/2011

Too few young people with learning difficulties and disabilities progress from school to complete programmes that will help them live independently, undertake further study, or gain employment.

The Ofsted report published in August 2011 titled "Progression post-16 for learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities", found that learning opportunities beyond school for young people with learning difficulties and disabilities varies considerably between local areas. There was insufficient provision available for learners with the highest level of need, and the current placement system resulted in significant inequities in the provision available for learners with similar needs.
