The Early Intervention and Targeted Support Service provides the bridge between universal services (schools, Early Years settings, FE Colleges) and specialist provision (social care, specialist Health services, Special schools). The focus is on raising achievement of vulnerable learners through reducing barriers to learning; and reducing referrals to specialist services.
The EITS Service delivers statutory LA responsibilities for assessment and placement of learners with Special Educational Needs and post 16 Learners with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities; school attendance; exclusions; and LA provision for permanently excluded or sick children. Priority areas of work are implementation of our Education Inclusion Strategy and development of preventative early help for children, young people and their families.
Resources include specialist teaching and assessment services; Educational Psychology and Education Welfare teams; family support; monitoring and securing compliance with legislation and policy. The service was restructured in 2011–12 into 4 operational areas:- North and South Worcestershire Education Inclusion Teams; Targeted Teaching Provision (based on Short Stay Schools); and Monitoring, Assessment and Placement Services (includes statutory assessment of SEN).
