Myth Busting Unregistered AP
EDClass's online alternative provision has been supporting students who struggle to access a mainstream setting for over 14 years. Persistent or severely absent students can use the benefits of an online provision due to the comfort they can provide which can allow students to have better experiences and outcomes with their education.
Unregistered alternative provisions have come under some controversy. However, it has to be recognised that with appropriate due diligence checks and robust measures implemented, unregistered APs can be just as beneficial as any other provision.
To find out about how unregistered APs can provide immense benefits such as secure safeguarding features, transformative attendance figures and effective reintegration strategies download EDClass's report below.
2023 EDClass White Paper Report - Myth Busting Unregistered Online Alternative Provision and the Benefits an Effective Online AP can Provide
Breaking barriers to learning can even be achieved via an online alternative provision despite not being registered. The placement should be “a suitable and safe placement that will meet pupils’ academic/vocational/technical needs, pastoral needs and, if appropriate, SEND needs.” (School Inspection Handbook, 2022)
The benefits an online alternative provision can provide are immense. There need to be stringent safeguarding measures, attendance tracking and alert mechanisms with flawless communication between the school and provider.
The students within these provisions need guidance, support and designated learning pathways with support if they require it. Once this is in place, the school and student both benefit and barriers to learning are broken. Read the white paper by clicking the image or by clicking here.
