The four pillars of learning provide the core of the programme:
Health and Wellbeing
The curriculum provides a practical approach for gaining and consolidating skills.
Communication, numeracy and digital literacy skills are a key part of learning, with opportunities to develop and practice these skills embedded within each of the four pillars.
This is a non-accredited course designed to give learners the opportunity to engage in learning which is relevant to them and will provide opportunities to develop a range of life skills, personal skills and attributes, and develop interests in different areas.
Following initial baseline assessments, using a person-centred approach learners will be set individual targets. Course tutors will provide support to track and review each target ensuring progress towards long term destinations.
Learners are likely to lead semi-independent lives when they leave college but will need continued support to develop and maintain their independence, play an active part in the community and any work environment. Some learners could progress onto Pathways 2, Exploring Independence within the college.
