Our FE department offers courses for learners who have severe learning difficulties and complex needs, providing care, support and guidance for students through a caring and nurturing community resulting in their excellent behaviour and high-quality personal development.
Within FE we aim to prepare our students for adulthood by providing a safe, stimulating, fun and nurturing learning environment, where all students can access a range of exciting learning opportunities, designed to educate, stimulate and challenge, creating an ethos in which everyone is valued and respected and where students are motivated, supported and encouraged to strive for success. We provide the highest quality of teaching and learning, through a skilled, experienced and appropriately trained and dedicated staff team delivering post 16 programmes which:
- Equip our students for an adult life in which they will have the greatest possible degree of independence as full and productive members of their own community.
- Prepare our students for adult life by taking part in independence and self-help skills programmes.
- Increase our students understanding and/or awareness of their community, environment and of the wider world
- Enable students to be effective communicators by promoting their ability to express preferences, communicate needs, make decisions and be either self-advocating and/or able to make use of an advocate
- Are responsive to the particular needs of individual students, including those who might require therapeutic curricula, in order to maintain their wellbeing.
- Provide opportunities for all students to be able to learn, progress and achieve in ways that are relevant, meaningful and realistic to their individual circumstances
