Advice and Guidance for Students with SEND

There are many specialist resources and a fantastic community providing information, advice and support for you and your family. The information provided here will help to make choices that are right for you.  

  • Dorset Your Futures - This platform offers information about future study options, labour market opportunities and the Local Offer.
  • SEND Virtual Transitions Fair - This is an online ‘event’ for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disability (SEND), their parents, and carers. Inside our virtual exhibition, you will find a wide range of information from local support groups and organisations, as well as on careers advice, and education and employment pathways, across the whole of Dorset, all in one place! It is born out of a partnership between Dorset Careers Hub, Dorset Parent Carer Council, and Parent Carers Together.
  • 'Routing for Them' is an easy-to-use interactive guide for parents/carers and children to learn about future pathways together and plan their best next steps. It encourages and supports parental engagement in important careers/futures conversations’
