Courses for you

Within Inclusive Learning at Suffolk New College we offer a variety of learning pathways within our RARPA (Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement) courses.

Our RARPA courses are built based on three pathway options; 

  • Route to Adulthood
  • Route to Independence & Volunteering
  • Route to Employment

In addition to our bespoke curriculum, we also offer specialised Personal Development (PD) sessions for learners which promotes a holistic learning experience, and this prepares learners more effectively whilst studying at college but also for their next steps.

All of our RARPA courses are developed to meet individual learner needs.

Personalised targets are set based on EHCP outcomes and progress and achievement is celebrated through a diverse and inclusive curriculum.

All RARPA courses are designed with practical and real life applications to ensure that topics and activities are meaningful and relevant for all learners.

These activities range from cooking, independent life skills, animal care, horticulture, teamwork and personal development topics.

Help & Support

Moving from school to college can be something of a culture shock. But at Suffolk New College we’ve created a supportive, social environment where you can easily get access to the help and advice you need, make new friends and get the most out of your time with us.
