Natspec

Natspec represents over 70 member colleges and the interests of more than 3,000 students with  complex learning difficulties or disabilities.

Natspec is the membership body for organisations who specialise in providing for students with learning difficulties and disabilities. Our colleges give young people the chance to become more independent and to learn in an exciting environment with personal support. Natspec believes that young people with learning difficulties or disabilities should be encouraged to have high aspirations for the future, and should be able to choose the college that will best enable them to achieve their goals.

Organisation Details

Natspec represents over 70 member colleges and the interests of more than 3,000 students with complex learning difficulties or disabilities.

We believe they have a right to the specialism and expertise which will enable them to achieve their long term aspirations and become valued and active members of society.

We support the intentions of the Children and Families Act but have concerns that a poorly designed funding system and excessive bureaucracy are preventing young people from attending the college that best meets their learning and support needs.

The current system is costly for providers and local authorities. Reducing bureaucracy and associated costs would allow everyone to re-focus on meeting aspirations and supporting young people to achieve their very best.
