The budget for placements including support and resources secured for learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities at independent specialist providers was £237 million in 2009-10 and this has increased by 12.7 per cent. in 2010 -11 to £267 million.

Local authorities will work closely with the specialist institutions and the Young People's Learning Agency to ensure that learners receive the provision and support needed to meet individual need and that this represents value for money.
