Overview

This Pathway has been designed to allow individuals to consider their longer term goals, by exploring interests in a number of vocational and practical subject areas. Using this experience, students are supported to make informed decisions about where they would like to go after college, whether that is to live more independently, study higher level qualifications or prepare for the world of work in a chosen discipline.

Description

Students will receive the support they need through the creation of an Individualised Learning Plan, which will detail predicted learning milestones and outcomes.

Every Individualised Learning Plan is different. A plan will be designed around the individuals’ interests and needs. It will include compulsory modules and a range of optional modules that students can choose.

Examples:

  • Independence training in the students home area (including travel training)
  • Employability training, helping students decide what sort of work they would like to do when they leave college
  • Functional Skills are mandatory, helping students improve their level of English and mathematics
  • Vocational studies:

However, if this is a one year placement students could progress into other colleges, studying higher level qualifications or secure a supported employment progra
