We work in collaboration with a number of agencies and third parties to offer tailored careers support to all our SEND pupils.
Our next major event is scheduled for KS4 pupils in September.
Julie Pritchard (Northamptonshire Schools Adviser for the Department of Work and Pensions) says
"I am planning a SEND Career, Apprenticeship and Resource Fair in Northants
My colleagues at Leicester City have recently organised a similar event that took place last month at Braunstone Leisure Centre for students from Leicester/shire.
In partnership with Leicester City Football Club who kindly hired the sports hall, they ran the fair from 10am-1:30pm with LCFC running inclusive sports activities for the students.
The fair had 30 providers attending, also in attendance were the Carers Centre, there to speak to parents, teachers and carers about respite options and several day care centres who provide holistic therapy such as cooking, gardening, crafts and animal care.
13 SEND Schools arrived throughout the morning with over 250 students, parents, teachers and carers. All got the chance to speak to the organisations and get a clear understanding on what is available for them, and have a bit of fun as well during the sports activities"
