Extending your education and training offer to include more children and young people

Mainstream Plus is an approach where education providers extend their offer so that more children and young people can access high quality education in mainstream provision.  Where this is done well, everybody wins!  Children and young people can stay close to home; local authorities as commissioners acknowledge that there are cost savings to be had and just as importantly, educators and learners extend their understanding of working and learning alongside people with more diverse experience of the world, leading to more inclusive communities.  This attached report and infographic highlights the characteristics of FE providers and schools that have taken this approach together with the previously mentioned benefits.
