Courses for you

Inclusive Learning at Suffolk New College offers 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 subjects, we also offer specialised Personal Development (PD) sessions for learners. These sessions promote a broad learning experience that allows students to come to their own conclusions and find solutions independently, helping to prepare learners for college education and 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.

Supported Internships

Supported Internships are a special program for young people with EHCPs in their final year of college. The goal is to help individuals who have the potential to work but may need some support.

  • Who It’s For: Young people in their last year of college with EHCPs.
  • Objective: Provide support for those who can work but may face challenges.
  • Purpose: Build a bridge between college and the workplace.

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.
