Expressive Art

Who is the programme for?

If you are between 19 and 25 years old and you are passionate about art and want to explore your creativity, then this is the programme for you. You will learn different art techniques and use different materials to create expressive works of art. You will attend College 4 days per week, Monday to Thursday from 9am to 3pm.

What are the entry requirements?

There is no formal entry requirement, however, you must have an active EHCP. We would like to meet you for an assessment before you join us at College to make sure this is the right programme for you.

About the programme

This programme has been designed to prepare you for the next exciting steps in your life. We will support you and get you ready to achieve your ambitions, whatever they may be.

You might want to live more independently, or get prepared for work. We can help you get the most out of your community and access further learning with a pathway into your chosen area of interest.

Here’s how we will achieve it together

We want you to become as independent as possible and throughout your time with us we will support you to make new friends, travel more independently and try new things at College and in your local community.

We’ll help you choose a work training programme that’s right for you, centred around your love of art.

You will have opportunities to:

  • take part in vocational taster sessions
  • get involved in volunteering, supported or part-time employment
  • develop your practical creative skills
  • get involved and take part in our enrichment activities at College and in the community including sport, health and wellbeing, creative and performing arts

We want you to be a happy, healthy and confident student.

Together we can work on your independent living skills, develop your digital talents and keep you safe online.

At the end of the programme you will have:

  • accessed valuable work experience
  • achieved an appropriate accreditation (Entry Level 1,2,3, Level 1,2)
  • your own personalised job ready pack including references and a digital CV
  • grown your circle of friends and support network

You will be able to live more independently or have transitioned to supported living, a home sharing scheme, or a personalised assisted living scheme.

Skills for Work and Living – Expressive Art is offered in a safe setting at six of our College centres with our creative partners.

Support

Throughout the programme we will support you with your maths and English learning and help you achieve accreditation if you need it. You will also have the opportunity to complete an employability qualification at your level.

We will develop your core skills in: Communication Problem Solving, Independence and Mobility, Work Skills, Managing Change, Personal and Social

As well as the teaching team delivering your programme, we will provide you with any specialist therapy and nursing support you may need.

 

Outcomes for learners are outstanding, teaching, learning and assessment are excellent and the extremely diverse programmes that meet learners’ individual needs, interests and aspirations, prepare them very well for life after College.
