Alternative education framework application form
The alternative education protocol [pdf document] provides further information about the application process.
Being placed on the framework does not guarantee schools will commission your services.
Providers will be subject to the 11-19 collaborative protocols.
Both parties are also required to have a service level agreement in place for each pupil placed.
Alternative education providers should be aware of the DFE's guidance
A summary is provided here: DFE's guidance [pdf document].
