Training in employment

As a result of the SEND reforms, all post-16 vocational training facilities and providers are required to support a young person with an EHC plan. Each training provider should have their own SEND support programmes and pathways in place. There are many voluntary and private sector companies that are able to facilitate support and guide employers and providers on how best to do this.

The British Association for Supported Employment gives further advice and support on how the SEND reforms can benefit those people 'training in employment'.

Take a look at the County Training website for information on vocational training and apprenticeships. Other training-in-employment options include supported internships.
