Foundation Learning...

Full-Time Study Programmes

We provide a range of Foundation Learning full-time and part-time courses for students with additional needs. Our aim is to help students develop a range of important skills - social, academic and vocational - whilst providing the support and encouragement for them to grow in confidence and express their personality. Our highly experienced and fully trained staff will give you lots of support and advice before you join college, and the support will continue during your programme.


All the programmes aim to help you to progress into independent living, further education and training or employment, and involve a mix of vocational study, basic English, maths and employability & tutorial sessions.


Whichever course you choose, you'll have the benefit of regular tutorials, enrichment opportunities, and advice and guidance on your next step as you build up your confidence, qualifications and skills throughout your chosen courses.
