Course Summary

The Inspire course provides a structured and secure environment whilst allowing students to experience a varied college curriculum. The course aims to support and stretch students to become as independent as possible encouraging them to embrace adult life. The Inspire course aims to introduce students to college in a small group environment in order to develop their social skills and ability to learn alongside others.

Course Details

There is a focus on progression and the course aims to prepare students for their next step whether this is a further course within City College Norwich or to other services. The course is designed for pre-entry level and entry level 1 students who need to develop their communication, independence and social skills. Students work towards individualised goals and targets alongside their EHCP. We aim to enable our students to be come more confident learners.

Staff will support students to continuously progress throughout the year. They support the students’ needs and aspirations for adult life.

The curriculum covers:

  • Communication and literacy
  • Communication through music
  • The world around us
  • Life skills and Independence
  • Enterprise
  • Personal development and adult relationships

Students will need to have successfully applied for and received funding. There will be some small costs throughout the year towards cooking, snacks and some activities. We may go on a residential in the summer term and will ask for a contribution towards this. If you are unable to make these contributions you will need to discuss alternative arrangements with the course tutor.

How will it be delivered?

There is no formal assessment on this programme. Students will have their progress towards individual targets continuously assessed and reviewed. Reviews with students and their parents/carers will take place throughout the year. Progression is tracked through target setting and an assessment of functional living skills.
