Further Education

4 years delivering weekly SEN provision

For the past 4 years IG have worked with Sheffield City Council’s Sheaf Training provision to deliver provision to learners with Education Health and Care Plans and who require support for a wide range of Special Education Needs and learning difficulties.

Initially commissioned work was targeted toward young adults who struggled with anxiety diagnoses and social skills, however we have recognised the benefits of IG sessions for others with developmental delays and challenging behaviours.

IG has been able to engage young people in recognising transferable skills, particularly regarding team work, which have improved self confidence to make steps towards work placements.

Flexible, conscientious and consistent, IG offer a innovative approach for students to access embedded literacy, numeracy, social and communication skills.  Their sessions are very well attended, and highly regarded within the organisation, as well as by the students themselves.
