Award of Contract - Education Provision for 14-16 year old SEND pupils

In 2018, as a pilot project, the County Council commissioned Chichester College Group (CCG) to deliver education provision for pupils aged 14-16 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).  The aim was to improve the outcomes for these young people that the County Council are not able to place in maintained schools or academy provision.


Following the positive results of the pilot it is proposed that the commissioning of this service with CCG will continue for a further 3 years.


There is currently provision for 18 pupils.  The new contract will enable this number to be increased to up to 30, and the council has also negotiated improved contract terms.
