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.
This statement paper has been produced as part of Scotland’s Colleges continued work to support the development of sector provision for learners with Profound and Complex Needs. This group of learners requires a specialist response within a college setting. The paper provides clarity to that response including a definition of the learner group and the current context of this work within ‘Opportunities for All.’

National Resource Bank
We are actively building a database of key documents, resources and hopefully useful templates within the Supported Programmes Subject Network. Further information can also be found in Building a Network of Excellence.
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.
