Whether you are aiming for your son or daughter to live in a residential or supported living setting, do a course or get a job, the college’s Futures programme can help.
The college offers a range of specialised programmes – catering for students with a wide range of needs – which can be tailored to their individual requirements.
Students will learn important life skills – such as money and shopping, using public transport, accessing leisure facilities, leading a healthy lifestyle and how to make friends and communicate with others – to help them move towards living as independently as possible in the future.
When you and your son/daughter have decided that college is the right place for them, a member of the SEND team will meet with you to assess their current level of ability and achievements, discuss their hopes for the future and their individual learning needs.
Following the meeting the SEND team will set up an individual educational package for your son/daughter and you will be invited to meet tutors and support workers and find out about what life at college is like.
