Referral and availability notes

LINK19 College provides day placements that are funded by a Local Authority (LA). The admission of learners with EHCPs to Specialist Post-19 Institutions is a decision for the LAs who have statutory responsibility for arranging learners' provision were appropriate.

LINK19 College is based in Gravesham within North Kent College’s Campus, and therefore caters primarily, but not exclusively, for Kent Local Authority. Parents are encouraged to work closely with the LA representative at the start of the transition process, thus flagging potential admissions well in advance.

All places are subject to availability of funding and higher needs funding eligibility criteria. Staff at LINK19 College will assess learners who are referred in their existing provision (if possible) before their place is confirmed to ensure that the college is able to meet their needs. Formal risk assessments may be necessary to identify the medical or care needs of an individual learner in order to determine suitability and/or compatibility with the needs of existing learners.

Learners and their parents will be given the opportunity to visit the college before being admitted.
