Profound and Complex Needs

The overall aim of the Profound and Complex Needs project is to support and enhance post-school educational choices for learners with profound and complex needs.

The project will concentrate on four task areas: Curriculum for Excellence, quality assurance, transitions, and support. Our national events will focus on aspects of each of these themes and how it impacts on this learner group. Localised training, working groups, and resource days will also be organised to fit demand.

Support Protocols wiki

This wiki will allow users to look at and comment upon documents currently used in local Colleges when engaging with outside support staff. It is hoped that the wiki will allow communication between colleagues, share good working practice and help shape thoughts on future development. View the working supportprotocols.
