Summary

These courses are designed for young people aged 16–18 (up to 24 with an EHCP) who may have experienced barriers to learning for a wide variety of reasons, and who may have had an interrupted education or negative experiences at school. The main focus of the programme is for learners to develop their self-confidence, improve their self-esteem, improve their social and communication skills, gain qualifications, move on to further courses at the College and prepare for adult life. These courses are extremely successful in helping learners from school-based programmes, home schooling or hospital education to move on to college-based vocational courses.

Learners will study a range of units based around personal and social development, employability, life skills and vocational options. Learners will continue to study English and maths. There will also be the opportunity to study vocational options, such as animal care, art, horticulture, catering, hair and beauty and construction.

How will I know how I am doing?

Learners will meet with their personal tutor on a regular basis in order to review progress and agree targets so that progress can be measured and learners challenged to achieve their best. Parents/carers will be invited to some of these reviews.

What do I need to join?

There are no formal entry requirements other than the ability to work within a classroom setting some of the time, with a group of peers
