Lynn Winfendale, Transition Manager at BLC says, “Education lies at the heart of our mission and through our SEND event we hope to empower young people and their families with the knowledge and information about the services and opportunities within their local communities.”  

High Peak and Staffordshire Moorlands locals will have the opportunity to get advice and information from a variety of services and training providers, the events will cover a range of areas including the Adult Social Care Team, Supported Internships, DWP Employment Services, Community Activities, volunteering, Diverse Learning Support, Mental Health Advice, Travel Skill Development, Autistic Society, and the Community Health Team.  

Aiming to involve everyone, the College’s events are open to students, parents, carers, and local schools alike. BLC’s current SEND students will be actively participating too, by acting as guides and helping to serve tea and coffee to guests.
