MPs report on the oversight of special education for young people aged 16-25

The House of Commons Public Accounts Committee has published a report on special education for young people aged 16-25. The report is based on evidence from the Department for Education, the Young People's Learning Agency, the Principal of Abingdon and Witney College, Disability Alliance and nasen.

Findings include:

  • almost one third of young people with a Statement at age 16 are not in any form of education, employment or training two years later.
  • the system for delivering and funding post-16 special education is complex, and parents and young people are not provided with the information they need.
