Graduated Response for Post-16s

The impact that post 16 colleges can make on how young people with SEND are prepared for adult life is crucial to their life chances. Listen to the young people below talking about the impact on their lives of high quality post-16 provision.

Where a student has a learning difficulty or disability that calls for special educational provision, the post 16 setting must discuss with students the type of appropriate support to put in place for them.

Colleges should use an "Assess, Plan, Do Review" cyclical approach to assessing need, planning and providing support.

There is further information on the Graduated Response below as well as further guidance and resources to support the important task of preparation for adulthood.
