Year 12 to 14 student
Students with special educational needs and/or one or more disabilities ...
... can get extra help, often up to the age of 25
Our careers advisers in mainstream schools offer extra support if it is needed. They can work with our SEND team (Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities team) to make sure students get any additional help they need. Advisers offer support and advice to people with special educational needs and disabilities to make sure they reach their potential and use their skills and talents.
Young people get impartial and independent careers information and advice both individually and with groups of other young people to help them develop their skills and talents fully. Where necessary, young people with special needs and disabilities get extra help finding out about and applying for careers and courses, including university, supported internships, apprenticeships and other post sixth form and college options. These Remploy factsheets describe some of the conditions and disabilities that may require simple adjustments or additional support.
