SEND colleges and providers

This is a detailed list of Independent Specialist Providers (ISPs) and local colleges who offer supported/foundation learning options, in and around the Birmingham area.

Please note that funding for an Independent Specialist Provider will only be considered once the Local Authority are satisfied that this is the most appropriate provision to meet your needs and there is clear evidence that no other local provider can offer a place, it’s therefore advisable to also look at local colleges and also training providers.
