#ALNFE project: ‘Supporting Learners with Complex Needs in Further Education’


ColegauCymru/ CollegesWales has been funded by the Welsh Government to deliver the #ALNFE project, ‘Supporting Learners with Complex Needs in Further Education’.

The project is working with staff from Further Education Colleges across Wales with the aim of:

  • Developing and increasing the capacity of FEIs in working with learners with complex needs.
  • Supporting FEIs in preparation for the duties associated with the introduction of new legislation, the ALNET Bill (Additional Learning Needs and Educational Tribunal).

The project runs from April 2016 to December 2016, providing training and resources for staff from all colleges in Wales.To date, the project has engaged with every Further Education college in Wales and reached more than 200 FE staff through conferences, meetings and webinars.

The project is also running a series of regional network meetings, connecting those who work in Further Education colleges with local authorities and other agencies in order to gain a shared understanding of issues for ALN post-16 learners.
