We still have places available starting right through until May 2021.

“I get a lot of support and reassurance to let me know that I'm doing a good job. I've learnt to count money more confidently and take my time when in the shop.”

Chelsea, Supported Internship at Waitrose

We offer two different pathways for students with high support needs, designed to give them the opportunity to develop their independence, confidence and skills for social situations, everyday life and work.

We also offer a third pathway which has been designed to help students re-discover their passion for education and work.

Pathway for Independent Living 

This pathway is the perfect preparation for students who are looking to take their next step in life. We will promote and develop the experience of living independently, working with students on their self-sufficiency and self-confidence. Students will be introduced to crucial skills for living independently such as travel, cooking, domestic skills, the value of money, forming appropriate relationships, healthy living and being involved in the community

Pathway to Supported Work

By continuing to develop skills for self-confidence, students will be prepared for a successful working life and gain experience of what it means to be employed as part of a wider team through our fantastic experience of work opportunities. Students will be supported with key employability skills throughout and receive regular feedback from our expert staff. On this pathway, students have the opportunity to study and progress on Supported Work Skills, Retail, Independent Work Skills and also gain a Supported Internship with one of our employer partners.

Pathway to Career Discovery 

Unsure about what the future might hold? This exciting pathway gives students the opportunity to discover new passions and career inspiration through a variety of interactive cross-college curriculum taster sessions, including animal care, catering, horticulture, sport and more. As well as spending time pursuing new interests, students will refresh their English and maths skills to re-energise their appetite for success.

We still have places for students starting throughout the 2020/21 academic year.

Trips, competitions and visits
