Additional Learning Needs

 

Additional Learning Needs and Educational Tribunal Wales

The Additional Learning Needs and Educational Tribunal Wales (ALNET) Act 2018 is just one aspect of the overarching ALN Transformation Programme.

At the heart of these reforms is a focus on inclusion, putting children and young people at the centre, and ensuring they are supported to reach their full potential.

The overarching aims of the Bill are to create:

  • a unified legislative framework to support children and young people aged 0 – 25 with ALN in schools and further education.
  • an integrated, collaborative process of assessment, planning and monitoring, which facilitates early, timely and effective interventions.
  • a fair and transparent system for providing information and advice, and for ‘resolving concerns and appeals’

The welsh Government sets out a timeline for the implementation of the Act.
