Date published: 30 April 2013

Organisational phase: Post-primary, Special Education

This summary sets out the main findings of a survey of the work of special schools within Area Learning Communities (ALCs) across the Education and Library Boards. The report is based on evidence from an evaluation of 16 special schools’ participation in ALCs, scrutiny of relevant ALC documentation and an analysis of the information from a short questionnaire issued to all special schools seeking their views on ALCs. The Education and Training Inspectorate (ETI) carried out the survey in November 2012.
