Special Education graduates are likely to be more visible in 2018 than ever before.
That’s because the Education Act 2018 has introduced a special exemption for those with disabilities, so that those with special needs can enrol in schools where they can study.
The new legislation, passed in June, gives all pupils with special education a ‘special education certificate’ (SEC) which entitles them to enrol in special education courses and services, including school, community and sports activities.
The exemption has been in place for almost two decades and it will continue to exist for up to three years.
Students with disabilities can now enrol in any school or other institution that allows them to do so.
For the first time, they will also be able to enroll in schools with special educational facilities, such as special schools or special groups.
As of April, all schools and other institutions in England will be able provide SECs to pupils with disabilities.
This means they will be exempt from being required to register with the National Registration Authority, which will ensure that they are in the country legally and cannot be sent home or refused entry.
But if you want to get an education, you will need to go to school and study in an approved school.
Special Education is a separate qualification for students with disabilities who need special education support.
In some schools, special education pupils may also be eligible to enrol at university, or at a secondary level.
In a few cases, the Government has provided some extra support to special education students.
This year, for example, it will allow pupils with learning difficulties to attend a school for special needs that has been approved for the purpose.
This is called the Special Education (Disability) and Carers’ (SAC) Scheme.
Students will be eligible for special education as long as they attend the school.
It will be up to the school to determine if they are eligible.
Special education students in England currently receive some help with the registration and education costs.
According to the Education Department, there are now around 5,000 schools that are using SECs in the UK.
However, some schools have been criticised for using SEC funds for things like textbooks, which are expensive and have no effect on the student’s educational progress.
Some parents have also complained that SECs can be a burden on schools and students.
They fear that the special exemption could lead to further restrictions on education for students who need it most.
Parents should also be aware that special education services may not be available to all students with special health needs.
This includes pupils with Down syndrome, as well as those with mental health or learning difficulties.
Special education services are available to those who meet certain eligibility criteria.
There are also some exemptions for pupils with certain disabilities, such an autism, deafness, cerebral palsy or cerebral palsia.
In many cases, however, the rules around these exceptions are not clear and the Department of Education has not been able to explain why certain exemptions are being allowed to students with some disabilities.
Many schools are also offering some special services that are not included in the exemption.
These include a ‘learning opportunity’ for pupils aged between five and 18.
It allows pupils to use a special room in their school for tutoring and other educational activities.
In 2017, the Department for Education published guidance for schools which allows pupils aged from four to 15 years old to access these special learning opportunities.
All of these exemptions have been welcomed by special education and disability organisations.
The Education Association of England (EA) welcomed the Government’s move to exempt special education from registration requirements and said it would ensure that schools have the tools to cater for all pupils who need help.
EA chief executive John Lough said: This is a welcome step and a welcome win for special children.
It is about getting the best possible outcomes for children, which is why the Government must make sure that schools and local authorities have the resources and support they need.
It is also important that schools provide the best education possible for children with special conditions.
If we are going to improve our education system for our most vulnerable children, then schools must ensure they are doing everything they can to support the needs of those pupils who have special needs.
Last year, the Education Minister, Chris Grayling, launched a new scheme called ‘special children’ and said that this would help special education enrolments increase from 1,500 in 2017 to 3,000 in 2018.
The Government has promised to continue this process.
