Foundation Skills

Foundation Skills prepare students for everyday life. We find that as students learn skills and explore new interests so they grow in independence and confidence. Courses take place in special facilities with lots of support and individual contact. The Bungalow is a great new facility which helps students with complex needs. Students join us for Foundation Skills courses from Entry 1 through to Entry 3 and then onto Level 1. All our courses have been awarded Grade 1, Outstanding by Ofsted.

Entry 1 and 2

Students come to College four days a week to learn at this level. In groups of 8-12, we concentrate on helping students develop life skills and grow in independence through sessions including:

  • Cooking & Food Hygiene
  • Independent Living Skills
  • Healthy Living
  • Horticulture
  • Recycling
  • Enterprise

Students also learn English, maths and ICT skills for use in everyday life and take part in a supported work placement with the College.
