I’m currently working with a charity who run a day centre for adults with LD. The learners would almost entirely fall into the high needs category.
The charity is looking at two options –
1. Setting up an independent specialist college.
2. Maintaining the day centre but providing the adult learners with various independent living, vocational training qualifications by becoming assessment centres for awarding organisations.
Can anybody share any experiences they’ve had doing any similar? Any lessons learned that you would like to share? Would both options mean that we could use ESFA funding for supporting learners/course costs? Tips with regard to the process?
