How I'll learn
You will be in small class sizes of no more than ten students, and there will be a learning support assistant in each of your classes to help you progress. We recognise that you might need some help to make the move from school to college so you will have a personal tutor who will support you along the way.
Where possible learning will be through doing and taking part in practical activities, in and out of the college environment, and you will learn new skills and improve on those that you already have.
You will spend four days per week in college, studying in a supportive environment where you learn to work more independently and grow in self esteem. You will receive a personalised timetable that will enable you to work towards your goals, and you gain nationally-recognised qualifications at an appropriate level for you.
How I'll be assessed
Your tutor will work with you to set individual learning targets each term and you will get feedback on your progress. You will be assessed through creating a folder of evidence for each subject.
You will be assessed at a level that suits you. The Functional Skills or GCSEs in English, Maths and ICT are assessed by an externally set test.
