Foundation Learning

In partnership with Severndale Specialist School we offer a range of opportunities for students with learning difficulties and / or disabilities aged 16-24, to develop the skills to prepare them for the world of employment, to grow their independence and to experience a range of opportunities to mature social awareness as well as self-awareness of abilities.

These courses are bespoke and tailored around the individual, linking to vocational areas of the College. Students will explore subjects such as Motor Vehicle, Construction, Hair & Beauty, Hospitality & Catering, Retail and Customer Service. The programmes focus on developing skills and knowledge within the workplace and provide the chance to identify potential further study to achieve qualifications. Courses are delivered away from the classroom environment, working inclusively with other students and meeting the public using the commercial facilities of the College.

We believe the course structure provides a supported yet challenging environment to develop each individual student’s potential whilst helping with confidence and self-belief as achievements are made.
