Inclusive Learning and Special Educational Needs
For many students, coming to college will be a huge step. It is a step from childhood to adulthood which will involve many changes, new freedoms and new responsibilities. It will mean students making more decisions for themselves and gaining greater independence in their learning.
Helping students progress to their next step
Our Inclusive Learning courses help students with special educational needs progress to their next step. Our bespoke small group programmes are delivered by a team of dedicated staff. We recognise the challenges our Inclusive Learning students face. We ensure we put in the right levels of encouragement and support to meet their individual needs.
On our courses, students will find high quality resources and facilities to support them. This include workshop areas where students can practice art, craft, dance, drama and sport.
We also have an industry scale greenhouse, a shop that serves the needs of the College community and a professional kitchen. Alongside these, we also have well equipped classrooms for developing English, Maths and personal and social skills.
