Education Select Committee [November 2012] Pre-legislative scrutiny of the draft Children and Families Bill: our submission

Pre-Legislative Scrutiny: Special Educational Needs

Response to Education Select Committee questions from Disability Rights UK

30 November 2012

The Education Committee conducted a pre-legislative scrutiny of the Government’s proposed reform of provision for children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN).

Disability Rights UK welcomes the opportunity this . Our response focuses specifically on the 14-25 age group when young people need impartial information, advice and quality guidance on the full range of options available to make informed decisions on their education, training, employment and independent living. Our evidence comes from our Helpline callers and members – including in FE, training providers, local authorities (LAs) and Connexions.
