Description

Cheshire East Council in conjunction with Placements North West created the North West Flexible Purchasing System (FPS) for SEND to provide North West local authorities with a secure quality checked route for placing 0-25-year-old learners with SEND into appropriate settings that deliver the outcomes that they aspire to.

Phase 1 of the FPS went live on the 1 March and included independent and non-maintained special school (INMSS) placements for Learners aged up to 16 who have an education, health and care plan (ECHP).

We had a good response from providers to Phase 1 and are now planning for the launch of Phase 2 of the project which will include placements for Learners aged between 16 and 25 who have an education, health and care plan (ECHP) and require support in General Further Education, Specialist Colleges and work-based providers.

See the attached bulletin for further information on how you can be involved in shaping the specification for the next phase of this FPS.
