Your careers adviser specialises in working with students who have special educational needs and disabilities. They work as part of our SEND team (special educational needs and/or disabilities team) in special schools and units attached to mainstream schools, which are also known as resourced provision.
Your adviser can talk to you about your options and tell you about support, funding and equipment for people with special educational needs and/or disabilities to make sure you develop your skills and talents and move into an option for students, who are 16 or over, that is right for you. This may include:
- Courses at a special school sixth form or at a local college:
- Apprenticeships, supported internships and training, or personalised programmes of learning, activities and independent living skills
- If there isn't a local course available, it may be possible in exceptional circumstances, to go to one of the National Specialist Colleges
- On the Calderdale Local Offer and the Kirklees Local Offer websites, you can find a range of local services and national organisations to support people with special educational needs and disabilities, such as support into employment and the Access to Work Grant.
If you feel you have been discriminated against because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, please speak to your careers adviser.
