When a pupil turns 14, we begin more in depth discussions with them and their parents about future goals. We will discuss any career goals and future prospects including, Adult Social Care. A lot of our pupils may require support in adult life and therefore an application to Adult Social Care will be appropriate.
Where your child has engaged with the Children with Disabilities team previously, their social worker will guide the transition into adult services. Otherwise, we will work with parents to make an application at the age of 17 and a half. It can be an in depth process, but it is really worthwhile, especially if your child wishes to access any of the adult day provisions that the area has to offer.
If you wish to discuss making an application for Adult Social Care, please contact Victoria Lee, HSLO – firstname.lastname@example.org
Students who follow a Social Care Pathway focus on developing their key independence skills and knowledge of their local area. The aim is for students to engage in community activities and develop their personal preference so that when they move onto a social care setting, they are able to communicate what they would like to do.
Students in Post 14 are able to enjoy taster/social sessions with these groups to allow them to take an active role in transition planning. Students and staff are able to reflect on the provision that is most suitable or enjoyed by each student.
