Description

Expressions of interest are sought to conduct a feasibility study to inform a future value for money study of SEN provision for pupils with Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans in England. The feasibility study will cover an investigation of the cost data available from local authorities (LAs) and educational settings, a review of relevant outcomes information and an outline of how value for money could be assessed.

The methodology will include an evidence review as well as qualitative engagement with educational settings and LAs, resulting in a report that summarises, for the purposes of a proposed future study, the cost and outcomes information required to determine the value for money of SEN provision and the extent to which it is possible to obtain this.

PLEASE NOTE: DEADLINE FOR EOI's IS: 10am 14TH JAN 2019
