This course is aimed at young people or adults with learning difficulties, emotional difficulties or challenging behaviour. The programme offers additional support and encouragement to develop confidence, self-esteem, personal skills and social skills within a practical environment.
You will need to complete initial assessments to understand your appropriate learning level, from Entry Level 1 to Entry Level 3. If successful, you will be placed on the suitable curriculum tailored to your needs.
You will be given practical opportunities to develop skills to help you to make choices and give you a greater range of options. You will follow a broad curriculum with individual learning targets set to help you gain new skills and develop independence.
You will have opportunities to get involved in sports, go on educational trips and visits, hear from guest speakers, and take part in organised activities delivered by nationally recognised bodies. You will also have the chance to participate in charity fundraising and community volunteer work to support your personal and social development.
You will be allocated a work placement officer to enable you to work within the community and gain work experience.
You will complete assessments individually and collect a portfolio of evidence as you progress through the course, and we will give you the skills to prepare for each assessment. You will have access to your progress through e-tracker. This can be accessed at home or in college.
Our part-time programme is based on developing vocational or work-related skills; these allow learners to develop sound skills that are transferable to other areas. There are options to take functional skills and vocational access courses. Many of our learners who leave the programme progress to vocational development provisions within the local authority and/or other training providers. We also have learners moving into employment from our courses.
