Care Act - Transition to Adulthood
The term 'transition' is used in the Care Act to refer to the process of change for young people, and those around them, as they progress from childhood to adulthood. Transition is an essential part of human life and experience and can be a time of celebration, change and also challenge for young people.
This course is intended for:
- Practitioners directly involved in the planning and support of young people, including those with special educational needs (SEN) and complex needs, who will transition to adult care and support, and their carers
- Specialist information and advice workers
- Managers of both the above types of roles
