Foundation studies

Everyone should have the chance to achieve their best. Discover our supported foundation and foundation programmes, for learners who need additional support.

Learners will have an opportunity to learn independent living and self-care skills, employability skills, digital literacy, English and maths, and in some cases, take part in work experience - depending on the programme they choose.
