Petitioning Minister of State for Children and Families Mr Edward Timpson

Give SEN learners more guidance on their future choices

Young people with learning difficulties and disabilities have significant problems in accessing impartial information about their further education options. Without this information young people and their families can’t make informed decisions about their futures.

The Ofsted Report “Moving Forward?” 2016 highlighted these issues stating “The provision of specialist, impartial careers guidance to learners with high needs was generally weak. The young people and their families interviewed by inspectors frequently stated that they had received insufficient information about the full range of opportunities available to them. Of the 20 local authority websites that inspectors reviewed, 16 failed to provide sufficiently detailed information”.

Young people with learning difficulties and disabilities are asking the Minister of State for Children and Families Mr Edward Timpson to ensure that everyone who has a statement of special educational needs or an Education, Health and Care plan has a named careers adviser with the expertise and knowledge to provide impartial advice and guidance from year 9.

They feel this should be a right, not a fight.

If you want to support young people with learning difficulties and disabilities get the right information then please sign….
