Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
If you are a young person with special educational needs and disabilities you may be able to access additional support if you are on a course at a Sixth Form, college, or learning at work. This is particularly the case if you have an Educational Health and Care Plan (EHCP).
Your school, college, or training provider will have a member of staff who can act as a point of contact and will be able to help you. They may also be able to advise you about any grants, bursaries and help with travel available, depending on your circumstances.
Your Local Authority will help you with information about travel and transport.
If you are applying for a higher education course at a University or a college, you may be able to apply for learning and personal support whilst taking a degree. To find out more about this, visit www.ucas.com or contact the University or college direct for advice and information about the support available.
