Curriculum Intent: Preparation for Adulthood

The term “Preparing for Adulthood” is used to describe the process of moving from childhood into adulthood. All young people should have equal life chances as they move into adulthood.

What are preparing for adulthood outcomes?

We will agree short and long terms outcomes to support the progress of the young person in meeting their educational and career aspirations. These steps must prepare and support them to achieve the preparing for adulthood outcomes:

  • Higher Education and/or employment – including exploring different employment options, such as support for becoming self-employed and help from supported employment agencies
  • Independent living – this means young people have choice, control and freedom over their lives and the support they have, their accommodation and living arrangements, including supported living
  • Participating in society – including having friends and supportive relationships, and participating in, and contributing to, the local community
  • Being as healthy as possible in adult life – ensuring access to the right health professionals who understand the young person’s learning difficulties and disabilities.
