Gateway - Preparation for Work/Adulthood Bespoke Programmes at Cambridge Regional College

Course description

A pre-entry and bespoke programme that supports students with high levels of learning difficulties including ASD and SLD. Each student will get a personalised study programme to build confidence in numeracy skills, communication, reading, writing and other personal and social development skills. The programme will also be tailored to help you gain greater independence at home and in the community.

Entry requirements

You will be assessed through a transition and induction programme which will ensure that you develop your communication, social, independence, reading, writing and numeracy skills at an appropriate level. There are no specific entry requirements for this programme and your individual learning plan will be developed to ensure that you achieve your goals. Please note that entry criteria may vary and this will be assessed by your tutors. In addition to the entry qualifications listed, the offer of a place on the course is subject to the outcomes of initial assessment, which will be taken at the College as part of the admissions process. Please note that entry criteria may vary quite significantly between courses at the same level. This is to take account of the specific skills needed for success on particular courses, the length of the course and the requirements for progression to the next level. Entry criteria are given as a guide, and the exact requirements in order to obtain a place on a particular course will be confirmed following attendance at a Welcome Event/Interview.
