Special Educational Needs (SEND)

Connexions Sandwell advisers give careers information, advice, guidance and support to help you prepare for the transition to adult life.

Connexions Sandwell provides free careers guidance for young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.

We work closely with partners including schools, colleges, training providers and other organisations to make sure you are supported appropriately.

We can work with you if:

  • you are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET), up to the age of 19 years old
    or
  • you are a school leaver and have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) up to the age of 25 years old

For more information on Education Health and Care Plans – Watch this Short Film

We can also discuss the Sandwell Local Offer. This is support that can be accessed for children and young people in Sandwell with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Watch this Short Film
