Education Other Than At School (EOTAS)

Education other than at school (EOTAS)

Cambridgeshire Alternative Education Service offers provision to students who have presented schools with difficult to manage behaviour. 

Key information

Funding for young people who are not able to attend school or do not have a school place (other than for students with statements) is managed by area based consortia of schools: 

  • Cambridge City 
  • South Cambridgeshire 
  • East Cambridgeshire 
  • North East Fenland

These consortia (known as Behaviour and Attendance Improvement Partnerships - BAIPs) work to try to prevent the requirement for 'Education Other than at School', and to ensure that, if required, it is of high quality.

How we can help

The Cambridgeshire Alternative Education Service provides education through TBAP Multi-Academy Trust, with Alternative Provision Learning Bases in Cambridge and Wisbech. Students from Years 9 - 11 are accepted at all bases.

Admission is by referral from schools, subject to agreements made with the Behaviour and Attendance Improvement Partnerships - BAIPs.
