Releasing Potential Conference 2019:

‘Managing Transitions in Education, Support & Social Care’

Wednesday 10th July 2019

New Place Hotel, Shirrell Heath, Hampshire, SO32 2JY

Keynote Speaker: Emma Lewell-Buck MP, Shadow Minister for Education, Children & Families


Transitions are a locus of anxiety for children and young people, especially those facing uncertain futures or those with additional needs. Against the backdrop of funding cuts and the closure of vital services, good transitions for children and young people are needed more than ever, and can make a real difference to outcomes and life prospects for the most vulnerable in society.

Our own recent change from outreach provider to an OFSTED-inspected school for students who are dis-applied from the National Curriculum has relied on a series of well-managed and complicated transitions. Our 2019 conference brings together a range of important voices to explore transitions in, to, and from education and social care settings. In particular, we hope to foster collaborative networks and the sharing of innovation and best practice across a range of sectors including health and social care, education, housing and the third sector.

Topics will include:

* Transitions from and to secondary school

* Transitions from and to primary school

* Transitions to tertiary education

* Post-16 work placements and social enterprises

* Transitions to and from alternative provision

* Transitions from outreach to school provision

* Transitions in and out of social care placements

* Transitions in and out of supported housing

* Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
