Lincolnshire is committed to providing Post 16 learners with a learning difficulty and/or disability (LLDD) with high quality local opportunities for learning skills that are relevant to their individual needs and aspirations for their future lives.
There is a choice of high quality post 16 provision to meet the individual learning and support needs of young people 16-25 with a wide range of learning difficulties and/or disabilities and individual requirements. The provision offers the appropriate environment, curriculum and support to enable learners to achieve their full potential and move onto their adult lives within their own communities.
All providers of LLDD should:
Offer programmes which provide an appropriate level of challenge and prepare learners for progression to the destinations that match their long term goals.
Explore ways to provide job coaching and internships to prepare learners for open or supported employment and apprenticeships.
Work in partnership with other providers and third sector organisations to maximise the specialist resources in the locality, and increase the range of options for learners with the most complex needs.
