This programme is offered to school leavers and young adults with mild to moderate learning difficulties. Places on the course are allocated subject to receiving suitable references from a previous educational establishment and attending an interview.
As demand for places is high, we arrange a ‘transition session’ to ensure we have the right course for the right individual. You will attend an interview and complete some basic literacy and numeracy assessments.
