We identify students with special education needs and disabilities by working closely with the Local authority , Young Gloucestershire, Youth Support team, Case Responsible Officers as well as our local mainstream and special schools to ensure we identify at the earliest possibility any learner with SEND.
How we identify needs:
We identify a leaners needs by the following:
1. If a learner has an EHCP
2. Attending annual reviews
3. On application, if a learner discloses a learning difficulty or disability
4. At interview
5. On the enrolment form
6. During initial assessment
7. As well as Support can be identified through the learners time at college
Once a need is identified, information is shared accordingly within the relevant departments. Depending on the level of need of the learner and, if appropriate, whether the funding has been agreed by the local authority, a support package will be built around the individual learner to enable them to achieve and progress on their chosen course.
