Leaving College

Throughout your time with us, we are focused on what you want to do when you leave college. We work with you, your family and the professionals working with you (such as social workers, transition managers and specialist careers advisers) to ensure your needs are met.

In particular, Annual Reviews are a very important part of this process. During your final year you will have two reviews. At the review, everyone comes together to share information about you and your progress that you have made.

Every effort is made to ensure that students leaving Orchard Hill College will have appropriate provision in place to move onto to support their independence and future aspirations such as volunteering, social enterprise, or further part time training alongside a programme of daily activities. Throughout your time at College you will have access to one to one careers advice to support you with your future choices.

 

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