College - Bursaries and oer entitlements help needed!
joencaitlinsmum · 26/08/2016 08:25
DS is currently in receipt of PIP as he has ASD and is about to start a BTEC course in September. He was told at interview stage that he would be entitled to claim for the costs of a laptop they need to complete course work, however I have spoken to the provider they said I need to go through my local authority for a bursary but everything I've read so far says it's the education provider? Does anyone know also can he claim anything else to make life easier travel costs etc?

There is a 16-19 bursary - it's means tested - if the YP is receiving PIP and ESA it is automatic.
If it's a requirement due to his SEN the college may feel the LA should provide it/funding for it.
Have you tried speaking to your local SEND info advice and support service for advice?
