Also very confusing for post 16 providers. LAs have ceased many post 16 plans for students we know are vulnerable, not purely because of an educational learning need. Of those with EHCPs, most travel to college by public transport. I suspect even if an offer were to be made to these, most would choose not to come in.
It looks like college bursaries will be paid directly to the student bank account but we don’t know how long this will take to arrange and if it will be budgeted to help the student / family manage this money over the coming weeks.
Any other post 16 providers know what you are doing yet?
