Abstract: Some recent attention has been directed towards the role that post-16 colleges can play in providing young people at risk of exclusion from school with opportunities to experience 'alternative' curricula and ways of learning. In this article the case of 'Darren' is considered, a boy for whom education in a mainstream secondary school setting appeared to have grown increasingly disjointed and irrelevant. This 'case' is used to highlight some of the challenges involved in school–college liaison in supporting young people who experience social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD)
