Alternative provision (AP) is education outside school, arranged by the local authorities or schools, for pupils who do not attend mainstream school for reasons such as school exclusion, behaviour issues, school refusal, or short- or long-term illness.

It includes Ofsted approved settings such as Victory Park, and the YMCA as well as a number of non-registered providers that can provide more tailored interventions.
