There are various levels and students will be placed on the right course following an assessment during interview.
This course is designed for school leavers and young adults with various learning difficulties, who want to improve their independence and employability skills.
Students will study functional skills in English and maths at an appropriate level (between Entry Level 1 and Level 1), alongside one of the courses below:
Units may include: developing independent living skills: being healthy, shopping for daily living, using communication skills in the workplace and undertaking an enterprise project. In addition to their course, students will work on non-accredited topics to improve their individual, personal, social and living skills.
These may include drama, sport, art, cooking, citizenship and travel training. There will also be an opportunity to take part in a work placement supported by our Employment Coach.
Students are supported in class, at lunch and break times and on off-site activities by our team of learning support assistants. We are also able to support on a 1-1 basis, where required, and provide a Communication Support Worker.
Course tutors will help students to prepare for their next steps. There may be opportunities to progress onto another course within Foundation Studies or vocational courses within the College.
There are also opportunities leading to paid, voluntary or supported employment.
