Our foundation learning department offers qualifications for learners who need more individual support. 16-18 year olds (25 if an Educational Health Care Plan is in place) can achieve Entry and Level 1 vocational qualifications. The courses allow Learners to build on essential skills and general education and get experience in vocational areas.

These qualifications allow learners to build and develop skills using both their own goals and tutors’ assessment of their current skills profile. This will include a vocational qualification, either focused on a particular area or a taster of several different areas.

This is supported by functional skills or GCSE in maths and English qualifications. Learners will receive support which will help them to assess their skills, regularly review their progress, and work towards goals they can achieve.

The foundation learning department also offers part-time ALD supported learning courses. These courses enable learners to develop independent living skills. All learners are given the chance to access appropriate educational opportunities by providing relevant, flexible learner centred programmes.

The department have high expectations and a keen focus on building learners confidence levels and softer skills in order to support internal and external progression opportunities
