No. It is not a requirement that a young person has an Education & Health Care Plan to access provision. However many of the young people we work with are often on the pathway to assessment for a plan or may be awaiting the outcome of a plan. As a specialist provision we are asked to contribute information to an educational assessment whilst a child or young person is with us. Connect2Education staff work with local authority advisors and Special Educational Need & Disability Coordinators in schools or academies to ensure provision and planning for each child or young person is reviewed regularly.
