The Sir John Cass Foundation funded project for the London ambassador scheme for learners with disabilities, concluded the findings of the project through the dissemination event on 23rd April at Queen Mary University London.

This three year project demonstrated that sustainability of intervention was key to learner progression, to further and higher education, that teacher awareness of the progression issues was vital in over coming barriers to FE and HE. The executive summary of the evaluation report outlined some of these key findings from the work with London East Thames Gateway AimHigher partners and the Sir John Cass foundation in delivering this project to learners in schools and colleges who have either specific learning difficulties, physical and sensory impairments and autistic spectrum conditions.
