Successful partnerships with local schools, special schools, social services and careers guidance services
We have robust progression paths available, ensuring students are clear on their options for their next steps. Students learn in a friendly environment and are taught in small group sizes to ensure individuals are fully supported.
Diploma in Personal Progress – Entry Level 1
Foundation Route to Independent Living & Work – Entry Levels 2 and 3
FE Choices – Entry Level 3 and Level 1
FE choices is an additional supported study package within the Foundation Learning offer for students who are working at Level 1, and are unsure of the direction they wish to take.
Two different Study Programmes are available, both of which have Maths and English running through many aspects, tailored to the student’s needs and delivered in encouraging taster sessions allowing students to pick and explore subject areas based around their personal interests.
Successful completion of the FE Choice programme allows students to progress onto a full-time subject area at Level 1 or Level 2, an Apprenticeship, employment or voluntary work, or a Supported Internship.
Work experience is an important part of the Foundation Learning Study Programme. It helps to build students' confidence in a workplace setting, develop new skills and helps them identify possible next steps after studying with us. We have relationships with organisations including Costa Coffee, Tesco, and local community projects who all provide work experience opportunities for our learners.
We are always available to talk, so please contact us if you would like to discuss any support needs or would like to find out more information:
