The SEND Code of Practice sets out how professionals across education (including early years, schools, colleges and 16-19 academies), health and social care should support children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) or disabilities to prepare for adult life, and help them go on to achieve the best outcomes in employment, independent living, health and community participation.
Young people with special educational needs (SEN) or disabilities have the same dreams and aspirations as their peers. They have many skills and abilities to offer. They want to work, have a better quality of life and play a full part in society like everyone else. As parents we want the best possible life outcomes for our children.
Bromley Parent Voice was asked by the LB Bromley to be part of a project team that is developing better life opportunities for our young people. We appointed Jude Bel as a Parent Champion who is working with the LB Bromley, schools, colleges, voluntary community sector and local employers to increase awareness and potential the opportunities for young people with special educational needs or disabilities to find employment (paid or voluntary) when they finish their education.
