Essential Skills: Foundation & Pathways

Have you left school with few or no qualifications?

Then our Pathways course is for you!

Your Tutor will look at where you want to be in the future and help you fulfil your potential. The course will give you the skills to move forward. It builds skills in English, Maths and IT, and will help you to develop personally and socially too.

Throughout the course you will get advice and guidance from trained staff and Connexions to help you decide on the right way forward for you. You will also get opportunities to do vocational ‘tasters’ (e.g. brickwork, carpentry, hair and beauty, animal care) and work experience, to enable you to decide what you want to do next.

Courses for Students with Learning Disabilities

The School of Foundation Learning also supports students with learning disabilities who are progressing to college and our courses for students with learning disabilities provide a great deal of pastoral care on a one-to-one basis.

A period of adjustment to the new learning environment is required as many learners are not used to travelling on their own but the college will support them to learn those skills, boosting their confidence and independence.

To prepare students for the world of work, the college has developed an initiative to provide students with the experience of a real-life working environment.  Showell Court is a residential home run by Accord Housing Association in Low Hill where our students run a cafe. They work there towards a City & Guilds qualification in Personal and Social Development and Employment whilst also studying Functional Skills in Maths, English and IT at college.
