Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Bill

A Welsh Government Bill, introduced by Alun Davies AM, Minister for Lifelong Learning and Welsh Language.  The Business Committee has remitted the Bill to the Children, Young People and Education Committee.

 

About the Bill

 

The Bill makes provision for a new statutory framework for supporting children and young people with additional learning needs.  This is to replace existing legislation surrounding special educational needs and the assessment of children and young people with learning difficulties and / or disabilities in post-16 education and training.

 

The Bill also continues the existence of the Special Educational Needs Tribunal for Wales and provides for children, their parents and young people to appeal to it against decisions made in relation to their or their child’s additional learning needs, but renames it the Education Tribunal for Wales.

 

Further detail about the Bill can be found in its accompanying Explanatory Memorandum.
