Futures Programme

The Futures programme is specifically aimed at young people with special educational needs and/or an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and provides a safe and inclusive curriculum which will also enhance their life skills and develop their abilities to help them move towards living independently.

The programme offers learners the ideal environment in which to grow in confidence, become more independent and develop the skills needed to help them look for jobs as well as those they will use when they are at work. It also develops skills for independent living and preparation for adulthood.

The college has experienced specialist tutors who will design a learning programme to meet the specific needs of each young person, as well as a team of learning support assistants who will work with them to ensure they get the most out of their time at college and be successful on the programme.

Before starting college staff from the special educational needs and disability (SEND) team will meet with the young person and their parents/carers to assess their current level of ability, discuss their learning needs and hopes for the future and then set up their individual educational package.

There are three specialised programmes and which one will be best for the young person in question will be discussed at the initial meeting:

Futures Pathways – for young people aged 16-18 without any qualifications and who may or may not have a learning disability

Futures High Needs – for young people who have who have special educational needs and/or an Educational Health and Care Plan (EHCP)

Futures Internships – for young people with an EHCP who have completed the Futures High Needs programme and who have been assessed as being suitable for a 12-week supported work placement with a local employer
