The College is committed to providing opportunities for all students to achieve their full potential within a safe and supportive environment.  The College works within a safe and supportive enviroment.  The College works within the guidance contained in the new SEND Code of Practice in relation to students aged 16-25.  We recognise that students with Special Educational Needs and Disability will need varying degrees and types of support to achieve their primary learning goal and we have a careful transition and assessment process to determine these individual needs.  Although the college is not a specialist provider and therefore cannot adequately and confidently offer support for students with more complex and profound learning needs we are able to provide good quality individual support for young people with:

  • Physical or mobility difficulties
  • Visual impairment
  • Hearing impairment
  • Communication difficulties e.g. Autism Spetrum Disorders
  • Learning Difficulties (moderate or specific) e.g. MLD, dyslexia
  • Medical conditions e.g. epilepsy, diabetes
  • Social, emotional and Mental Health Difficulties e.g. ADHD

A specific curriculum is available for students with Special Educational Needs and Disability which is relevant and flexible and which offer continuity and progression.  However, this does not preclude these students from being accepted onto other appropriate programmes in College so long as they meet the entry requirements.

How accessible is our setting?

People applying to the course will receive a date and time for a personal interview during which they can discuss any concerns about support needs.  An assessment of these needs will be arranged immediately which gives a chance for a more in depth discussion with both the student and their family.
