Our Foundation Programme is highly structured and supports young people with complex needs. This is a specialist course that meets all of the expectations of a Study Programme. You will study life skills, maths, English and undertake small group sessions that will help you to work towards your EHCP outcomes. In addition, you will work with your tutor and explore communication skills, using money, keeping safe, teamwork, problem solving and turn-taking .

The Foundation programme provide a safe environment with specialist facilities, such as adapted wet room, hoist and specialist toilet and changing facilities.  With high levels of support, the programme provides an opportunity to work both in a small group and then to enable you to access all areas of the college. These include, stable management and horse studies, catering, enterprise, horticulture and animal management. You can also work in the shop.

Young people on the Foundation Programme will also work with our Job Coaches and Careers Lead to develop the skills for work and begin to explore work experience and work based learning tasks.
