Entry requirements

Springboard is suitable for students who require supported and structured learning in a safe environment. Springboard is best suited to young people who can manage (with support) the open College campus and a community-based curriculum. There is an expectation that a student’s behaviour will not be a hindrance to their own learning, or that of others. Admission will therefore be subject to a positive six-month behavioural reference. Applicants should be working at Milestone (P level) 5 or above; if working at Entry Level 2, the Life Skills programme should also be considered. All students will need to have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) in place.

 

Future opportunities

There are further options available at Entry Level within the School of Foundation Studies, the details of which will be discussed at regular intervals during attendance on the Springboard programme. Social Services provision, sheltered workshops and opportunities with other partner providers will also be discussed on an individual basis. Students may fast track on to other courses offered by West Suffolk College, upon successful achievement of targets set.
