SEND

SAME AND DIFFERENT

The CEC have adopted Talentino’s #SameAndDifferent model , the national SEND school career model that allows identification and successful deliverance of career activities that will help young people with
SEND prosper. This concept of ‘same and different’ is something we have thoroughly
developed from our work in all schools. With our model, we hope to develop the
understanding of early career development, and in turn, encourage
employers to contribute to the progression
of early career development
for people with SEND.

WHO ARE OUR YOUNG PEOPLE WITH SEND?

The SEND Code of Practice defines four groups of additional (SEND) needs:

  • #1

    Communication and interaction - Speech, language and communication needs, Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

  • #2

    Cognition and learning - Specific learning difficulty, moderate or severe learning difficulty or profound and multiple learning difficulty.

  • #3

    Social, emotional, and mental health difficulties (SEMH) / behaviour sensory.

  • #4

    Physical needs, including visual impairment, hearing impairment, multi-sensory impairment, physical disability.

Why we need to be aware of the barriers that potentially face a young person with SEND?

Understanding exactly who you are working with is the first crucial step in creating positive career possibilities for young people with SEND.

Being aware of the barriers a student may face can allow us to conduct an individual careers approach that incorporates additional time and support when it is needed.

CELEBRATING INDIVIDUALITY

To support equal opportunities for our young people with SEND Talentino choose to approach career development in terms of the two SEND career groups.

Career SEND group 1 - typically will not take Level 2 Qualifications / GCSEs and can enjoy career outcomes including supported employment, Supported Internships, Inclusive Apprenticeships, supported Enterprise, T-Levels, Traineeships and FE College.

Career SEND Group 2 - will typically take Level 2 qualifications / GCSEs and should enjoy the same career outcomes as their peers – Apprenticeships, University, College, Employment or Enterprise but often do not as they can face multiple barriers. Talentino! is a ‘not just for profit’ company that really cares about the security and happiness of your child.
