Apprenticeship Support for Learners with SEND (Code: C1371)
Starting an apprenticeship programme can often leave an individual feeling overwhelmed with how to juggle not only the demands of the workplace but how to meet the criteria set within their chosen programme. If an individual undertaking an apprenticeship also has a diagnosed learning difficulty these challenges may be heightened further and therefore the need for specialist support is imperative to ensure the learner is retained and able to complete their programme within the planned end date.
