We offer a range of bespoke courses for young people aged 16 – 25 years with moderate learning difficulties. These courses focus on the skills that are required to take those learners in to the ‘world of work’, enable them to progress to other courses or enable them to live more independently.
Learners on these programmes will develop their literacy, numeracy, vocational and independence skills which will be relevant to their long term goals and are useful to them in their everyday lives.
The emphasis is on providing a curriculum which allows learners to develop these skills and to ‘learn by doing’ through practical activities, using real and relevant situations. We deliver provision across two campuses which are suitably resourced for the curriculum offer.
Vocational areas such as construction, retail, gardening and motor vehicle are delivered by qualified staff in the specific workshops or practical areas.
Personal tutors work closely with learners, parents and advocates to ensure learners access realistic and relevant curriculum options at entry level which allow the learner to work towards realistic long term goals.
There is a strong emphasis on support for these learners to enable them to overcome their barriers to learning and to independence. The level of support is reduced as and when appropriate to reflect the needs of the individual.
