SEND HLTAs are important because they bring specialised knowledge and skills to the classroom, helping to create an inclusive and supportive learning environment for students with special educational needs and disabilities. Their work is essential in ensuring that all students have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

According to the DfE’s 2020 publication, ‘Special Educational Needs in England’ approximately 15% of all students (age 3-19) had Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Of these students with SEND about 22% had statements or educational health care plans (EHCP). This highlights the growing need for support in the sector and the requirement for qualified HLTAs within schools.

This new programme extends the LMP commercial portfolio to include HLTA Level 4 and HLTA SEND pathway Level 4.
