Our Study Programmes

What does our SEND department offer?

Our programmes include a broad range of teaching, learning and support approaches to students accessing pre-entry and entry levels courses. These courses are designed to help students become more independent, build their confidence and improve communication skills.

Our courses typically run four days a week, 17 hours a week over the academic year.

Students can progress within the department, to the next level of study or into mainstream vocational courses across the college.
