New Post 16 education provision in Telford for young people with SEND

Derwen college

From September 2020 Derwen College, a well-established further education provider for young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), will open a satellite site in Telford.  For the first year a limited number of places will be available (15) to those leaving school in Summer 2020.  Young people eligible for the provision will be working at Entry level (including pre-entry, level 1 and 2) and have an Education, Health and Care Plan.  The college will offer curriculum pathways focusing on business support and hospitality whereby a range of work based placements and preparation for adulthood activities will take place.  For September 2020 a number of young people have been recommended for this provision from their schools.  With the agreement of those young people and their parents, assessments are being carried out by the College to assess suitability. Further information about Derwen College at Telford can be found here.  
For enquiries please contact the Preparing for Adulthood SEND team on 01952 381045.

We want your views?

During 2020 the Council is undertaken a review of post 16 provision for young people with SEND in Telford.  If you are a young person with SEND, or their parent, we are holding a workshop on the 5th March 2020 to collect your views about the current offer and suggestions for improvements.
