Delivered live via zoom, this one day training is designed specifically for parents, carers and supporting family members of children who are approaching or above compulsory school age, or who are young people (post-16).

The course aims to provide attendees with information about the law on special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and the considerations that apply in the context of a young person, empowering you to secure the right education for your child as they transition towards adulthood.

Delivered by a member of IPSEA's legal team, the training covers:

  • What your local authority and education setting should be doing to help
  • The framework of the Children and Families Act 2014, including SEN support, EHC needs assessments, content of EHC plans and annual reviews
  • How the Mental Capacity Act 2005 may apply
  • Social care duties, including the transition from child to adult social care
  • Transport duties relating to those over compulsory school age

The content will be particularly relevant to those who are navigating post-16 education and training for the first time, as well as those who want to refresh their knowledge or gain a greater understanding of the law.

This training is not appropriate for those such as local authority staff who may be responding to the rights of a parent or young person. Our Local Authorities SEND Law one day training has been developed specifically for local authority staff.

This training is now fully booked, please keep an eye on our upcoming training page for other sessions.
