Essex County Council’s Transition Pathway Service helps young people with a Statement of Special Educational Needs and/or additional needs plan their journey from childhood to adulthood and this is called ‘Transition’.
The Transition Pathway Service will work with young people and their families from aged 13 and can offer support up until their 25th birthday.
Most young people on statement will start planning for the future in year 9 (aged 13) and will receive a letter from their school inviting them to a transition review. The Transition Review will help young people plan for their future and will look at everything from hopes, dreams and aspirations to further education, leisure, health, employment and finance.
Planning for the future and transition review meetings is really important to ensure access to further education and services.
