Hertfordshire Send Local Offer

Making decisions about what steps to take beyond school can be daunting for young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and their parents or carers. Different pathways can be chosen including, for example, taking a course at a local further education college or accessing employment with training.  

Supporting the effective transition of students from special school into post-16 provision

Our guide, Supporting the effective transition of students from special school into post-16 provision, sets out a framework of activities designed to support young people to transition into their new post-16 environment with confidence.

Although targeted at supporting students in specialist provision, the guide can also be used to inform parents or carers of young people with SEND in mainstream schools. It will enable you to start a discussion with your child about their goals for the future and the activities that they would find useful to help prepare them to make the transition from school. You can use this information to plan next steps with teachers and other SEND professionals.

Learning Pathways guide

Many young people with SEND will want to go to college but don’t know where to start or what courses are available to them. We've created a clear and simple tool that shows what each of the four Further Education colleges in Hertfordshire offer. You can also find out who to contact in each college if you want to know more.
