Students enjoy a varied programme including artistic activities, movement sessions of gym and eurythmy, crafts and practical activities including cooking and baking. They also have individual sessions as appropriate with specialist staff in functional skills, independence skills and therapeutic support.
The views of students about their lives and work are promoted through House meetings, the Student Forum and Student Council.
In the first few months of College Year 1 tutors and students get to know each other and there is an emphasis on working together in small groups through crafts, movement and artistic activities. In the last term, students try out different workshops in order to select one or two in which they would like to specialise.
In College Years 2 and 3 students focus on one or two workshops, with an opportunity to change workshop at the end of College Year 2.
Work experience placements are available as appropriate for individual needs in each year of the programme.
Students can achieve accreditation for their work through Edexcel qualifications including: Skilled for Life (Entry 1 and 2); English, Maths and ICT Functional Skills; and BTECs Levels 1 and 2 in Cookery.
