Course Overview

Perfect for those leaving full-time education and want to continue to learn, our return to education course will provide you with opportunities to expand your skills and enable you to progress forward. We are committed to providing an inclusive learning environment and aim to help you make the most of your learning opportunities. We want to ensure that students with disabilities, including learning disabilities, feel welcome and supported throughout their time at college.

This programme is for school leavers (19+) who wish to continue their learning in a college environment. The curriculum is personalised so that you can participate in a range of activities which stimulate and encourage your development. Our core themes for learning are: personal development, health and well-being, citizenship, and communication.

What You'll Learn

Year 1

You will take part in our engaging programme of practical and vocational sessions based primarily within the college including activity days, cooking, healthy lifestyles, DVD enterprise, independent living skills, creative choices, my office, woodwork, and Ebay enterprise.

You will take part in assessment in the first half of the college term, during which you will have the opportunity to sample different sessions to find which sessions challenge and develop your own individual strengths and development goals.
