Developing Profound and multiple learning disability (PMLD) provision in the FE and Skills sector

Summary

 This resource has been developed for the Education and Training Foundation by Natspec to support providers who are currently –  or who plan to be – working with learners with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD). Natspec has a wealth of experience in this area and is pleased to share that with the wider sector.  Although there are many challenges to working with learners with PMLD, it is also enormously rewarding. With a carefully planned and well-resourced approach, providers can make a huge impact on the outcomes and quality of life of PMLD learners, both while they are  on-course and for many years afterwards. 

The resource is aimed at all providers who are striving to develop provision where young people with PMLD can make progress towards good life outcomes, achieve their potential and be prepared for adult life.
