Provision to promote engagement and/or reengagement to mainstream school
The purpose of Engagement and Re-Integration is to establish a connection/rapport with the learner and with the mainstream setting which can be built on to move towards reengagement with learning.The purpose of Reengagement is to encourage the child or young person to reengage in education. Reengagement activities need to be interesting, inspiring, interactive and safe. Effective vocational training programmes (including Academic) and learning opportunities can help children or/and young people to reach their full potential, enabling them to develop or update existing skills to get back into the workplace. Sometimes a short-course to give an accreditation in a specific work area can overcome barriers to employment and enhance an individual’s employability as well as boost self-esteem and self-confidence. Individuals can develop self-esteem and enjoy better mental health and wellbeing from participating in positive activities. Providers should demonstrate a willingness to work collaboratively with mainstream settings to support learners to reengage with mainstream learning. This may include: outreach support, information sharing and providing specialist information, advice and training to mainstream settings. This lot includes access to therapeutic services and counselling as detailed below.
Learners may also need access to therapeutic services and/or counselling:
Therapeutic services, in this context, are activities that have a therapeutic effect on the child or young person. Therapeutic services may not be registered to an accredited body, however there is the expectation that staff will be qualified, trained, and experienced and that there will be Continuous Professional Development and regular supervision. Therapeutic services help people to “tell” their story, solve problems and build resilience in a safe and supported environment. Therapeutic services need to be safe, non-judgemental, accessible, culturally aware and confidential and the skills and characteristics of the therapist are very important to successful outcomes.
A broad range of activities can be classed as therapeutic ranging from activity based to animal based.
Counsellors are required to be registered with a professional body for regulating counselling/psychotherapy and that staff will be qualified, trained, experienced and that there will be Continuous Professional Development and regular clinical supervision. Counselling is about focusing on what matters to find a way through difficulties. Services are aimed at helping children and young people overcome difficult and challenging situations and life events, improve relations and provide support for people to manage more effectively changes in their inter-personal and family life.
The DPS maybe extended for 2 x 12 month periods
The values provided in Section (ii) (2.6) is only an estimated potential value including extensions (values maybe higher or lower) as the council cannot guarantee any level of business through the Dynamic Purchasing System.
Provision to support Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
The LA has a duty to identify, assess and make provision to meet the special educational and wider needs of children within its area and to monitor progress against outcomes. The SEND Service aims to provide a range of appropriate educational opportunities and additional resources for children and young people with special educational needs so that their needs can be met in an inclusive setting. Children and young people with SEN present with a range of needs and therefore there is a requirement for a wide range of personalised packages of support suitably differentiated to meet individual needs. In order that costs reflect the range and complexity of support required, the LA wishes to develop positive working relationships with a wide range of providers to ensure that costs reflect individual needs and offer best value for money. The Provider must be able to:
— identify suitable educational provision and/or learning opportunities that meet the needs defined in the young person’s individual SEN Support or statutory plan,
— facilitate the transition process to enable the child/young person to return to the most appropriate education setting where appropriate,
— engage in proactive partnership working with parents/carers and a range of agencies to meet the specific needs of the child/young person,

— contribute to all statutory processes and attend reviews where appropriate
