Foundations

This first Foundations year at college enables you to settle into college life.

It introduces our ways of working, IT systems and timetables and allows you to become familiar in the new environment at your own pace. This enables you to become more confident and relaxed within a new educational setting. Group sizes are small and support is focused on preparation for the future. The Foundations programme is designed around six projects, Maths and English, with the sole aim of developing and improving independence skills, life skills, travel training, communication, teamwork, self-management and personal care. Ambition, future plans and targets are also explored and developed within this programme. This includes developing links with other providers and participating in external challenges and events within the local community.
