This programme is for learners over 16 who have additional needs and who want to progress into the world of employment.

The course has a person-centred approach and focuses on helping learners work towards and achieve their long term goals and outcomes, particularly those related to employment.

Learners will gain skills to improve their independence and employability through work based subjects in a variety of work settings. We offer a range of Vocational Options for learners to choose from so they can study subjects that are interesting and relevant to them.

All of our learners take part in enterprise or work experience, both internally and with local employers. You will also complete activities for daily living and receive travel training support.
