Course information

This non-accredited pathway is designed for those learners who may not yet be ready to progress onto a vocational pathway or whose priority is working towards being independent citizens. As part of the course, learners focus on developing their personal development and EHCP outcomes, travel training, independent living, healthy lifestyle and functional/digital skills. As part of the study programme, all learners undertake work placements.

The Skills for Work and Life and Personal Development groups participate in many projects which support the development of their independence skills including a weekly pop-up cafe in Sandiway Library, working in the community shop and constructing and maintaining vegetable gardens.

Learners on this pathway will develop a wide range of independence and personal skills, knowledge and understanding to support good mental health and well-being in preparation for adulthood.
