In this week's episode of the Tes FE podcast Clare Howard, chief executive of Natspec, speaks with Tes columnist and podcast host Sarah Simons about the growing number of specialist colleges in FE.

Natspec is the membership association for organisations that offer specialist FE and training for students with learning difficulties or disabilities, and the organisation has watched the number of post-16 providers for students with special educational needs and disabilities rocket over the past five years. The growth in provider numbers has led to questions about the fragmentation of sector provision.
