Course description

This course is aimed at adults or young people with learning difficulties, emotional difficulties or challenging behaviour. The programme offers additional support and encouragement to develop your confidence, self-esteem, personal and social skills within a practical environment.

Course content

You will be given practical opportunities to develop skills to help you to make choices and give you a greater range of options. You will follow a broad curriculum with individual learning targets set to help you gain new skills.

Entry requirements

You will need to complete an initial assessment and then be assessed at your appropriate learning level before you can be offered a place on the programme.


You will complete assessments individually as you progress through the course, and we will give you the skills to prepare for each assessment.

Future opportunities

Our part time programme is based on developing vocational or work-related skills; these allow learners to develop sound skills that are transferable into other areas. Many of our learners who leave the programme progress on to vocational development provisions within the local authority and/or other training providers. We also have learners moving into employment form our courses.
