After that, some people may even want to go to university.

The booklet here gives you lots of information about the different places you can learn in Portsmouth and some of the courses you could do. It tells you about the application process and about routes into work.

What is an Education Health and Care Plan?

An Education Health and Care Plan is also sometimes called an EHCP.


EHCP’s are for Children and young people aged 25 and under that need extra support, that cannot be met by support available in mainstream school or college.

An Education Health and Care Plan is a legal document that makes sure children and young people get all the help they need whilst they are in education ( but not when the go to university).

In Portsmouth there is a special team which looks after EHCP’s and does the EHCP assessments. They are called the SEN Team. You can contact them by:
