Specialist Education Institutions (SPI's)

Achieving for Children currently supports a number of young people in Specialist Providers Institutions (SPI) placements.  Some of these are out of borough but we also support young people to attend in borough specialist college provision at Orchard Hill.  Our expectation is that SPI's will offer learners with SEND, provision of the highest quality possible to ensure that they enjoy a positive learning experience whilst resident at the SPI and are able to progress successfully at the end of their placement. 

All AfC’s post 16 ISP placement providers are included in the list of independent educational institutions approved by the Secretary of State under Section 41 of the Children and Families Act 2014 (the ‘Section 41 list (opens a new window)).
