Preparing for Adulthood Guidance

For all children and young people with SEND from year 9 upwards and at each Education, Health and Care plan [EHCP] review thereafter; Middlesbrough Council, educational settings, health and care will include clear pathways focusing on preparing for adulthood and transitional arrangements early.

Preparing for Adulthood should be discussed with the young person prior to the review, during the review and after the review. A preparing for adulthood approach should be used throughout all person centred planning meetings to help form the best outcomes for EHC plans, setting out clear outcomes to prepare young people for adulthood.
