Courses

All students are individual and each course is as unique as they are. Our courses are designed to support and empower each student to achieve their aspirations and goals, which link to four study programmes linked to the Preparing for Adulthood Pathways; Employment, Independent Living, Friends, Relationships & Community and Good Health. We will also develop your core skills in: Communication, Problem Solving, Independence and Mobility, Work Skills, Managing Change and Personal and Social.

Technology plays a big part in your life at college, our Digital School team will encourage you to use assistive technology enabling you to be more independent, improve your communication skills and potential in the workplace. We want you to flourish in all aspects of your life and learning and prepare you for a digital world after college.

We deliver a number of courses and each student will be assessed to ensure they are on the appropriate course for them. Have a look at our Skills for Work and Living Courses on this website that will help you develop your skills whilst studying one of our 14 different and exciting vocational pathways.

As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
