FORMAL ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

You will need to complete an initial assessment and an Education Health Care Plan (or be in the process of completing one), before we can offer you a place on the programme.

WHAT DOES THE COURSE INVOLVE?

ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES

You will have opportunities to get involved in sports, educational trips and visits, hear from guest speakers and take part in organised activities delivered by nationally recognised bodies.

You will also have chance to go on residential trips and participate in charity fundraising and community volunteer work, to support your personal and social development.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

You will complete assessments individually as you progress through the course and you will be supported in your preparation work.

WHERE CAN I GO NEXT?

The full time programme offers learners the opportunity to develop independence skills; learners will work towards becoming more independent in and around college and outside in their local community. Many of our learners develop skills that help them to make choices about the future, giving them more independence in their own lives. When the course is complete, learners often move on to our part time Pathways programme in order to develop vocational or work based skills; they also progress on to vocational training provided by other agencies and placements in work.
