Individual Supported Learning

This programme is for students aged 16-24 who have a learning difficulty and/or disability. The programme provides educational, social, personal and work-related skills for the future.

What you will learn

There are a number of routes that students can choose from within a range of related options and subjects. There is a clear focus on developing life skills and vocational opportunities in a range of real life contexts, to enable our students to have greater independence and develop their skills.

We have a co-ordinator and a travel trainer to support students into work placements and independent travel. In addition we work with a range of partners and family for planning and progression throughout the programme, ensuring that individual student’s aspirations remain the focus of our work.


All students will have the opportunity to work towards nationally-recognised qualifications which underpin our curriculum offer. This is developed through a personalised programme. We offer entry qualifications through to Level, including qualifications in functional Skills.
