National Star launches new provision in Hereford
We are excited to share that National Star has launched day provision for young people with disabilities in Hereford.
Now the responsibility for student funding has moved from central government to local authorities, it has become challenging for those with disabilities to gain access to specialist colleges and services outside of their local area. It is therefore crucial that we develop and expand our range of flexible provision so that we can provide support to those who need it across the country. In doing so, we can also work in partnership with local authorities and support them in developing their local offer. Our provision has been launched to do just this.
This has been designed for learners with physical and learning disabilities. It offers two different pathways that provide a sensory–based curriculum and a high level of support. These enable learners to develop skills in social interaction, self–awareness and self–expression, meeting their goals and preparing them for the best that life can offer.
We ran a successful pilot for six young people from September 2014, and they have just started the second year of their programmes. A new intake of a further eight people started in September 2015.
