Bridging the Gap
SEN Learners Event
WHERE: Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford Campus
WHEN: Wednesday 26th October 2016
The Essex Collaborative Outreach Network is delighted to announce that students, support staff and parents can now reserve their place at ‘Bridging the Gap’. Working in collaboration with Anglia Ruskin University and Essex County Council the event aims to give young people with disabilities and special educational needs an insight into university life and the support that’s available for them.
‘Bridging the Gap’ is suitable for students in years 10-13. Parents and support workers are also welcome to attend to support their student during the day. The students will discover the diverse range of course available at degree level and the many opportunities university life has to offer. The day will include a tour of the campus, interactive workshops and presentations to discover ways the university and local authorities can help support young people at university. There will also be a workshop dedicated to help parents support their child in the transition to adulthood.
Parents and students will also be able to meet with other higher education providers in Essex to discuss the courses and facilities they have to offer.
We look forward to seeing you there.
