Post 16 Engagement & Learning

Post 16 provision

As a charity with extensive experience in working with vulnerable and marginalised children & young people, we are able to provide packages of youth work and learning to young people over 16.

Children can leave school on the last Friday in June if they are 16 by the end of the summer holidays. They must then do one of the following until they’re 18:

  • stay in full-time education, for example at a college
  • start an apprenticeship or traineeship
  • spend 20 hours or more a week working or volunteering, while in part-time education or training

For young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, to do this without a significant amount of support is a real challenge. For those that have been outside of mainstream education for a long time this can be an incredibly daunting and difficult proposition which can seriously harm the physical or mental wellbeing of this individual.

Future Education is able to provide targeted support and learning opportunities for young people with a range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities as they move into post-16 provision. This may take the form of 1-2-1 learning support, transition support and strategy development with their learning destinations, or the provision of bespoke, year-long learning packages and accreditation.

This service can be commissioned by Local Authorities, Schools, Colleges or other education establishments.

For more information please contact the School Administrator on 01603 251 310 or

Please note: Future Education cannot take pupils onto the school roll beyond the age of 16. Any and all services provided to post-16 individuals are separate from the school and fall under the charity’s youth-work remit.
