What is an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)?

Live webinar: Friday 17th July, 9:30 – 10:30am

An education, health and care (EHC) plan is for children and young people aged up to 25 who need more support than is available through special educational needs support. EHC plans identify educational, health and social needs and set out the additional support to meet those needs.

It is vitally important to ensure that EHCP covers all aspects of a child’s needs, and makes clear provision for it. If you need more help applying or reviewing an EHC or simply just a refresher on the entire EHC process then this one-hour webinar is a must!

What will be covered in this webinar:

  • EHCPs in the Children and Families Act and the SEND Code of Practice
  • Working in partnership with children, young people and their parents through the EHC process
  • Applying for an EHC needs assessment
  • Expectations for schools around implementing EHCP provision
  • Conducting Annual Reviews
