THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will examine the next steps for alternative provision (AP) in England.
It will be an opportunity to discuss key themes in the government-commissioned independent review into school exclusions as it prepares for reporting by the end of the year, with increased concern surrounding a recent rise in exclusions and an increase in ‘off-rolling’ removal of students.
Delegates will also consider key aspects of the Education Select Committee’s recently published inquiry, highlighting ‘the scandal of ever increasing exclusions’, which recommends the introduction of a Bill of Rights for pupils facing exclusion and their parents, and a commitment that schools publish their exclusion rates each term.
Further sessions discuss the Government’s vision for AP, Creating Opportunity for All, and its focus on improving quality and meeting individual needs, developing best practice and partnerships, and expanding the number of AP free schools - as well as the proposed introduction of a dedicated AP Innovation Fund with the first projects for the fund announced.
Delegates will also discuss the next steps for improving outcomes for children and young people when leaving AP and transition to other education settings, training, higher education and employment - looking at guidance and relationships with employers and post-16 providers.
