Adviza is delighted to be partnering with Buckinghamshire Council to launch the SEND Employment Forum in Buckinghamshire. The purpose of the SEND Employment Forum is: 

  • To develop a strategic approach and action plan aimed at improving employment outcomes for young people with SEND 
  • To bring together all the local partners who can develop and deliver pathways to sustainable employment and promote collaborative working 
  • To create routes that will support more young people with SEND into paid employment 
  • To identify, develop (where there are clear gaps) and promote training and resources that schools, colleges and employers can access to make meaningful paid work a realistic outcome for all children and young people with SEND 
  • To provide partnership strategic support and challenge to the implementation of the internships work grant funding and action plan.

SEND Forum


The forum brings together a huge diversity of organisations from Buckinghamshire, including employers and training providers, support services, the Council, schools and colleges, as well as young people themselves and parents, all with an invested interest in improving the outcomes for SEND young people in Buckinghamshire by helping to grow and develop opportunities for employment.



The first SEND Employment Forum, which took place in October 2023, was well received and we were delighted with the feedback received:
