Is this course right for me?
This course is designed for learners who want to be part of their local community. Learners will take part in some community projects complete some enterprise activities. This programme helps students with SEND develop skills for life and work. Learners will be taught skills they will need for work or volunteering within the local community If learners need support to access college they need to provide their own PA to attend classes and support them throughout their college day.
The learners be taught by a Pathways Tutor and will explore options that are available to them in the future. Progress will be monitored and recorded using RARPA processes. Learners may need to provide some PPE for specific projects. Learners will need a bus pass or money for bus fares.
Classes run on Wednesdays from 9 until 4 pm with an hour for lunch.
What options are there after completing this course?
We will work closely with the learners and their circle of support, to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to progress onto another part time course within the college or access other agencies. Learners may choose to use their newly learnt skills at home, in a job or to take part in activities within the local community.
Coming to College is a full time commitment and you will need to ensure that you have factored in the cost of travelling to College and potentially to a local work placement. If you are concerned about this, please click here to see what financial support is available through our Student Services team.
We do recommend a few good resources that you can choose to purchase if you wish which you can see here (link). We may request contributions are made to trips and outings.
