There are three pathways within Foundation Learning:
ESOL – More formally known as English for Speakers of Other Languages provides students with a nationally recognised qualification. Alongside English lessons, students will also study maths, employability and study skills.
SEND – Our Foundation Learning programme that specialises in providing a more supportive environment for students with special educational needs and disabilities. From Level 1 to our Entry Level 2 qualifications, we ensure students are ready and equipped for mainstream college education. All learners will continue to study maths and English, at a level appropriate for them and will also work towards building their independent study skills and employability skills to help them to progress to higher levels of study or employment. These vital skills are developed through a range of tailored trips, visits and residential opportunities allowing young people to develop both professionally and personally.
Vocational – We have a wide range of courses available at Entry 3 and Level 1. All learners will continue to study maths and English, employability skills and work related learning. In addition, you will have the opportunity to choose a vocational option, which you will study with industry professionals for 6 hours per week. There are a range of Professional and Technical options available:
- Creative Industries
