17.45 Where it is known

17.45 Where it is known that a young person will soon be completing their time in education or training, the school/FEI/local authority should support the young person to engage with the services and provision they will be accessing once they have left education. The young person should know what will happen once the IDP ceases. Moving to Higher Education 17.46 Where a young person is enrolling upon a HEI course, the school/FEI should support the young person to share relevant information, including the young person’s IDP. This will allow the HEI to consider what support they can provide and help inform the DSA (Disabled Students’ Allowances) Assessment. 17.47 Securing a place in higher education is a positive outcome for many young people with ALN. Where the young person has this ambition, the right level of support and provision should be offered to help them achieve that goal wherever possible. A smooth transition to higher education should be planned as early as possible. 17.48 The Equality Act 2010 places a duty on educational institutions to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ for disabled persons, which can include: making changes to a rule, requirement or practice; making changes to buildings or premises; or providing equipment that will help. 17.49 Schools, FEIs and local authorities should plan a smooth transition to higher education (and, where applicable, to the new local authority area) before ceasing to maintain a young person’s IDP. Once the young person’s place has been confirmed at a higher education institution, and where asked to by the young person, the school, FEI or local authority should pass a copy of the IDP to the relevant person in that institution at the earliest opportunity. 17.50 Young people should also be advised on what support is available to them in higher education, including how they can claim it.

Chapter 18: Avoiding and Resolving Disagreements Summary 18.1 This Chapter relates to the requirement on local authorities to make arrangements with a view to both avoiding and resolving disagreements. 252 It also includes detail in relation to the duty on local authorities to make arrangements for the provision of independent advocacy services. 253 18.2 From time to time, disagreements may arise about ALN or ALP. As far as possible they should be avoided or resolved through dialogue at the earliest opportunity. 18.3 The inclusive process of developing an IDP and the requirement to take into account the views, wishes and feelings of the child, child’s parent or young person (see Chapter 3), is intended to help to overcome concerns and avoid disagreement. Schools, FEIs and local authorities’ focus should be on providing the parties with the opportunity to raise concerns or questions at every stage of the process and prevent problems from escalating. Standards 18.4 The local authority is responsible for ensuring that the arrangements for avoiding and resolving disagreements are appropriate and of suitable quality. For example, in delivering these arrangements, the local authority are expected to: take responsibility for the overall standard of the arrangements, including having a development plan with clear targets which are reviewed regularly; ensure there are appropriate management structures for the arrangements, which includes overseeing, regularly monitoring and reviewing the arrangements and taking account of local or national best practice; ensure there is adequate resource and staffing to meet the needs of children, their parents and young people in their area; ensure that staff providing the arrangements receive appropriate training and development to undertake their role effectively and training is refreshed to improve standards; ensure that the arrangements are well-publicised, accessible and easy to use for every child, child’s parent and young person; actively seek feedback about the arrangements from those using them to inform the development and continuous improvement of the arrangements; have clear funding and budgeting plans for the arrangements; and provide the arrangements to be free at the point of delivery; 252 Section 61 of the Act. 253 Section 62 of the Act Page | 169
