Education reviews and consultations

Medical Education Provision - Commissioned Service Delivery Model

Worcestershire Children First (WCF) completed a review of the Medical Education Provision and presented this to Worcestershire County Council Cabinet on the 18 March 2021. Following public consultation WCF sought approval from Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Education, 3 August 2021, to progress the proposed commissioning of the Medical Education Provision within Worcestershire.

WCF is tendering for the provision of education for children who are unable to attend school because of medical needs. The service is required to provide an excellent educational experience, which ensures children and young people make good academic, social, and emotional progress, allows them to work towards and gain appropriate qualifications, and health permitting, to return to school as quickly as possible. The service will also be required to support the Medical Education Pathway through Outreach support, building the capacity of mainstream schools to better meet the needs of children and young people with medical needs.

This new provision will offer an improved infrastructure and educational offer inclusive of facilities, IT, and curriculum options. It would also be registered with Ofsted. In addition, pupil-led funding will follow the child for the time spent away from their school.
