Lucy is a manager for SEN provision in a college near Manchester.
The college runs courses for students with a diverse range of special educational needs. These courses provide progression for learners into mainstream and vocational courses.
An important aspect of these courses is the employment placement component where learners get hands on experience of work. The benefits of this are not just for the individual but also for the wider college community in terms of social integration and cohesion.
