EHC Plans and Special Educational Needs

EHC Plans and Special Educational Needs

We provide a service which is flexible and supportive, whilst remaining both professional and discrete.

Working in Partnership with Local Authorities

Macclesfield Tutorial College has a proud history in education spanning 30 years and has experience working closely with local authorities to provide tuition and examinations for their clients, including cared for children, children in need, or individuals with SEND.

Initially formed as a private tuition business, MTC now also offers full and part time GCSE and A Level courses as well as serving as an examination centre for private candidates. Many of our students are not taught within the traditional, mainstream education system and may not attend school for a variety of reasons, ranging from personal choice to home-school, to those who have felt that school was not the best environment for them. Many individuals have physical, psychological or psychiatric conditions which require additional care beyond which is typically available in most schools.

Supplementary tuition and examinations can assist with achievement of an EHC plan

We strongly believe that our flexible and supportive approach affords each of our students or candidates the greatest chance of success and achieves the best possible outcomes. When an individual has a condition which makes it uncomfortable or impossible to participate in a traditional school setting, we offer an alternative and experience shows that a tailor-made, one-to-one approach can overcome most issues and anxieties. In order to ensure that each individual has equal access to qualifications, we are also experienced at administering examinations in the candidate’s home, or other accessible locations when attendance at our centre is not achievable.

Value For Money

We recognise that Local Authorities are required to respond to needs outlined in The Children’s and Families Act 2014 and the Code of Practice, whilst also having a legal duty to consider costs when making decisions, both in the short and long term. Funding can be used to meet young people’s educational needs and aspirations and, indeed, supplementary tuition or examinations can even assist with achievement of an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan. We offer a value for money service and have a proven ability to work effectively alongside Local Authorities to make best use of limited resources.

Supportive & Flexible

“Macclesfield Tutorial College never fail to take a person-centred, inclusive and supportive approach to meeting the individual needs of young people through carefully tailored tuition and highly personalised timetables.

Their sensitive and supportive approach has enabled numerous young people to better manage and overcome significant barriers to learning which had previously resulted in some being unable to attend other school and college settings.

The learning experiences provided by Macclesfield Tutorial College have been nothing short of transformative for these young people and it has been wonderful to see them grow in confidence and enjoy and achieve both personally and academically over their time at Macclesfield Tutorial College.”
