You will be taught in small groups by a dedicated team of highly experienced staff. Our Specialist Support department offers help and support to you if you have an additional need or a disability such as sight loss, dyslexia or hearing loss.

This course is suitable if you are a school leaver or young person with moderate to severe learning difficulties. It aims to build on prior learning of basic skills and to accredit essential skill and vocational / practical skill areas.
