Electronic Personal Education Plan (ePEP)

Coventry Virtual School (formally LACES) are introducing a new electronic Personal Education Plan (ePEP) for September 2016. This will enable teachers, social workers and foster carers to all contribute to the PEP process in a creative constructive manner.

To support the introduction of the ePEP a number of seminars are being held by our provider eGov Digital.
