Education, employment and training


Post 16 Settings

Post 16 settings are required to publish information about how they provide support to students with special educational needs and disabilities.


What are post-16 settings expected to provide?

Best practice approaches are already in place in the majority of Plymouth's post-16 settings.


Education, training and employment

If you are aged 16-25 and have a special educational need or disability, there are lots of options open to you.


Going to university

The transition from sixth form or college to University can be both an exciting and daunting time. On entry to higher education, your Education, Health and Care plan stops.

You can apply for Disabled Students' Allowances (DSAs) to cover some of the extra costs you have because of a mental health problem, long-term illness or any other disability.
