Valicity’s innovative programme for SEND

Valicity revives innovative programme for special education

Valicity has recently purchased property in Staffordshire with plans to expand on a previous innovative programme for education and residential care, specifically for individuals with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

In the UK, there is currently a wide variation in the provision of support for children and young people with SEND. Valicity aims to change this in Staffordshire by partnering with technology experts to revive an ambitious project aimed at modernising special education.

Initially developed as The Mill Learning Academy, the project was intended to be more than just a school. The original plan was to repurpose a disused carpet mill in Bradford into a community hub that would also support the local area’s regeneration.

The innovative programme aimed to incorporate cutting-edge technology to create a variety of learning and development spaces that catered to the specific needs of the individuals involved. The curriculum was designed to go beyond traditional academic subjects, focusing on essential life skills and employment-oriented development as appropriate.

More information and updates on this initiative will be shared, along with details from the original project. In the meantime, you can learn about Valicity’s innovative training and care programmes on our website or by contacting us. Additionally, one of Valicity’s key practices is building partnerships within our local communities.
