Course Details

This course has been designed to develop Personal and Social skills and to offer students with moderate learning disabilities and other learning needs, a range of activities from which to build confidence, resilience, independent thought, and self-esteem.

The timetable includes art, cooking, TITAN, Maths and English. Students will be encouraged to identify activities and interests they would like to pursue within an educational framework to help shape their curriculum, such as creative writing, book club, craft and small enterprises. All students will be given the opportunity to gain qualifications in Functional Skills and PSD.

Students will work toward personal and team targets within a supported environment where all contributions are valued. Appropriate levels of support will be in place in the class. Tutorial Supervisors will be available to support the students in matters that include personal, financial, educational, and social issues. They can liaise and represent the students with internal and external agencies.

Appropriate levels of support will be in place but progressively we will work throughout the year to enable students to be more independent and to achieve realistic targets.

Students attend College for three days each week, 9am - 4pm. Group sizes are normally limited to eight students.


Assessment is informal and ongoing. There are opportunities for students to take qualifications in Functional Skills in Maths, English and a qualification in Gateway Personal and Social Development.

Entry requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for this course and acceptance will be subject to an interview.
