Abstract

Accessible summary Leaving school can be difficult for many young people with learning disabilities. We wanted to know how teachers and support workers work together to make leaving school easier for young people with learning disabilities. Also, what do teachers think should be the next step for young people? Many young people want a job but when we asked teachers and support workers they said most people go to college and do not get a job. We asked teachers why this happens. Summary The paper reports the findings of a study of professionals in strategic and operational positions who were involved in transition planning for young people with learning disabilities. Respondents were asked to comment on what they regarded as the optimal aim and outcome of transition from school to post-school placements. The results illustrate the problems and advantages of inter-agency partnerships in delivering meaningful post-school destinations for young people leaving school.
