Post - 16 Provision in Lambeth For Young People with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND)
Last Updated on Thursday, 12 January 2017 10:13 Written by Administrator Monday, 09 June 2014 13:32
Choosing the right further education is important to every young person. When a young person has a special educational need and/or disability (SEND) the choice is sometimes even more complicated.
Further education is the education after you are 16. It is usually different from that offered in universities (higher education).
Most colleges recruit learners in September but also in January. Early application is necessary for some of the more popular courses.
Some schools in the borough offer 'route ways' to college.
In Lambeth, our local offer college is Lambeth College. The college offers a range of courses that may meet your needs. Programmes are offered that have been specially created for young people with SEND in order to provide pathways to employment, independence and being a full member of the community. Other programmes offer the opportunity for young people with SEND to be included with appropriate support to promote success.
