About Supported Learning

We offer a discrete provision for learners who may have a severe learning difficulty, ADHD, autism, Asperger Syndrome or a physical disability, and need direct support. Our Supported Learning section allows learners to study either on a full-time basis or part-time for two days a week.

Learners studying full time will join the Transition to Independence programme, where they will be given the opportunity to engage in challenging learning activities, allowing them to develop a range of skills that follow a broad curriculum. The aim of this course is to develop students’ independence, work in practical ways to promote teamwork, and give students the chance to make choices about their future.

Learners studying part time for two days a week will join the Learning Pathways programme, which aims to develop a specific area of skills, whether they be related to IT, work, PSHE (Personal Social Health & Economic Education) or sport.

You will be given a personal tutor who will help create an individual learning plan for you to identify targets to work towards.

If you require further information about any of these programmes, or you wish to apply for a place, please contact Elaine Groves at [email protected] or call Elaine direct on 0121 667 5050.
