Supported Learning Overview

We offer personalised programmes that will help prepare you for work, living independently and college life. Whatever your aspirations are we have programmes that will develop your confidence, increase your skills and knowledge and platform to progress.

We will provide you with real opportunities to learn and develop and you will get a chance to study in an incredible friendly and caring environment. Our Personal and Social Development pathway will help you learn independent living skills, managing money and personal care. On our Vocational Studies pathway you will get an opportunity to experience college life through a varied timetable of vocational tasters, which also includes literacy and numeracy.

If you are interested in learning about business and enterprise skills, then do our Enterprise pathway, where you will run and work in our very own stationary and convenience shop. Our Employability pathway will focus on developing the attributes needed for employment as well as undertaking a supported work placement.
