The Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Bill was passed by the National Assembly for Wales on 12 December 2017 and became an Act on 24 January 2018 after receiving Royal Assent. This will create the legislative framework to improve the planning and delivery of additional learning provision, through a person-centred approach to identifying needs early, putting in place effective support and monitoring, and adapting interventions to ensure they deliver desired outcomes.
- The Act will be supported by:
- regulations - secondary legislation where further detail is required
- an ALN Code - statutory guidance and mandatory requirements to help people and organisations work within the law.
In addition to the new legislation and statutory guidance, Powys County Council is taking this opportunity to assess all of its Additional Learning Needs provision to ensure a parity of provision across the county which is fair and equitable.
