Ansbury logo

What we offer

At Ansbury, we work with Dorset Council to support young people through their training and education needs to adulthood.

We offer impartial, one-to-one, face to face or telephone information, advice and future options from professionally qualified staff to support you as a young person with an EHC plan.

We also:

  • attend your year 9 review
  • use a year 9 transitions screening tool 
  • refer you to the Transitions Team or Adult Social Care where necessary
  • support you to overcome barriers
  • help with action planning
  • inform the 0 to 25 SEND Assessment Team of your post 16 plans through an individual report
  • identify sources of information to underpin further online research and self-help
  • attend parent events at school
  • monitor your post 16 learning offers and support you if there are no plans in place
  • attend transitions operational group meetings to discuss identified cases
  • update interventions and/or screening in year 10 and year 11 where needed
  • update interventions in years 12 and 13 where needed
  • have manager representation on the SEND Delivery Group

We will help you with job seeking skills;

  • completing application forms
  • writing CVs
  • identifying skills
  • online applications
  • interview skills

We also support you by referring you to:

  • learning providers
  • statutory services
  • benefits
  • health
  • National Careers Service
  • Face Forward who offer support for people who are furthest from employment

We send a letter to all young people about to enter further education at the end of year 11 to remind them that we're available to support them in college and how to contact us.

Who is eligible

Young people who are eligible for this support are:

  • young people aged between 13 and 19 who are Dorset residents and have an education, health and care (EHC) plan
  • young people aged between 19 and 24 who are Dorset residents with an EHC plan, are not in work, are in learning and receive support from Adult Social Care

How we know who needs career advice

We find out who needs our support by:

  • reviewing data from Dorset Council
  • using our links with special schools and mainstream school SENCOs

Where we meet you

We will meet you:

  • at your school
  • by Skype call if you're in education in another part of the country
  • at home; we can visit you in school holidays if you're educated out of the area and you need intensive intervention
