Preparation for Life and Work

Preparation for Life and Work

​Our Preparation for Life & Work programmes are tailored around individual students, providing supported and structured progression through to the next stage of their education and lives. Our modern facilities, with a newly refurbished flat and kitchen, provides a relaxed learning environment which offers all students the opportunity to study at a suitable level. A consistent and structured approach and an emphasis on identifying specific individual learning needs, enables students to progress and gain a greater level of independence. Our curriculum offer covers all levels from Pre-entry to Level 2. Our Progression courses enable students who have not achieved GCSEs previously to work through the levels to gain qualifications, to access other courses within the College. Our student flat and large training kitchen allow students to gain important life skills and help to develop independence. We also have a garden, used for projects and home growing of vegetables and plants. All of our facilities are fully accessible. We work closely with Gateway Qualifications who promote empowerment of learners by providing learning experiences that inspire personal development. Gateway’s principles are: we are all individuals every learner is different inspirational learning experiences empower learners learning champions future success

Danny is a happy, friendly and well-mannered young man who doesn’t hide his condition and never tries to use it as an excuse for not doing work. He has a 100% attendance record. His self-motivation and independence is an example to us all. Staff and students are inspired by his willingness to have a go, bravely getting on with things.​
