The TES Further Education Podcast – Episode 16

25th April 2014 at 13:40

In this episode, Sarah Simons explores some of the most successful learning models for learners with learning difficulties and disabilities, as well as finding out about the roles of collaboration, working across departments, building relationships with the community and with employers in order to offer the most useful education for vulnerable young people.

Jarlath O'Brien, headteacher of Carwarden House Community School in Surrey, explains the transitional process into his school and to the destinations beyond, Rob Bates, of City College Norwich, describes how the college's Mint programme supports learners with barriers to paid employment into work and Janine Cherrington at Transition 2 in Derby, a college collaboratively developed as a way to meet the continuing educational needs of local learning disabled young people, tells how the community plays a pivotal role in learners' journey to independence.
