Swansea County Council chooses IMPULSE Nexus from CACI to implement the ALN code of practice

Swansea County Council has chosen IMPULSE Nexus from CACI to transform its services by implementing the Additional Learning Needs (ALN) process across its area. The new ALN code and regulations are due to come into effect in Wales from September 2021, with the aim of supporting all children and young people who have identified additional learning needs, up to the age of 25.

“We are pleased to be using IMPULSE Nexus to support our efforts with the new ALN code,” says a spokesperson for Swansea Council. “The new statute presents a more robust framework to support all children and young people across Swansea who have an additional learning need, so it was important that we selected a partner who could provide us with the tools and support that we need for this new era of integrated services. The team at CACI has a wealth of experience in enabling change to support outcomes for children and young people and we feel that IMPULSE Nexus fits our needs now and going forward.”

“We are delighted that Swansea County Council has chosen IMPULSE Nexus to facilitate ALN digital collaboration and service transformation,” says Phil Lucy, director of CACI’s children and young person’s team. “We’ve put a lot of thinking and work into ensuring that IMPULSE Nexus can provide innovative and robust support to Welsh local authorities to deliver against this new framework. We’ve partnered with local authorities for many years in delivering Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) information system requirements, and through our understanding of the Welsh context we feel that IMPULSE Nexus is now uniquely positioned to facilitate the ALN code across all of Wales.”

Swansea is one of the first two local authorities to deploy IMPULSE Nexus to enable a local roll out of the ALN code of practice. For more information on how IMPULSE Nexus can support the Welsh ALN code, and your service, please click here.
