The SEND Code of Practice (2015) states that “everyone working with children and young people with SEN or disabilities should support them to prepare for adult life and help them go on to achieve the best outcomes in employment, independent living, health and community participation.”
Preparing for Adulthood is a responsibility in all phases of education and training from Early Years to Post-16 and for some learners till age 25.
So, as education practitioners, how do we prepare our children and young people for adulthood
- To be mentally and physically healthy?
- To access health and social services?
- To participate as active members in their chosen communities?
- To know their rights and protect themselves against bullying, discrimination and exploitation?
- To have healthy relationships and friendship groups?
- To have their needs identified accurately and early?
Join us for this webinar as we explore the theme of PfAEY, as well as how to use our Review Guide to conduct a self-evaluation and inform an action plan for school improvement.
