Alternative Provision

Through the Sheffield City Council, the 14-25 Progressions Team arranges Alternative Provision on behalf of schools through a robust tendering, contract management and quality assurance structure with a network of Alternative Provision Providers across Sheffield.

Where a child is on roll at a school, referrals must be made by schools and parent/carer permission for placement is always required.

The 14-25 Progressions Team offer 2 programmes:

  • Progressions Programmes
  • KS3 and 4 Re-engagement Programmes

At Sheffield Wednesday we offer the following programme:
