For learners working at pre-entry level, specifically those with severe learning difficulties and disabilities, it provides progression from Lifeskills Year 1 to Year 2 for those who are able.

Units include:

  • working with others
  • learning to be safe
  • personal awareness
  • getting to know your local community
  • maths and English.

You can access appropriate and relevant education to improve your life opportunities, by gaining confidence and developing independent living and work skills. The qualification is based on individual starting points, creating a bespoke course around EHCP and individual targets.

No formal entry requirements are required, though realistic learning targets would need to be agreed.

You will be assessed through a variety of ways (activity, group work, photographic and video), which will be presented through a portfolio of evidence. You will have weekly tutorials and receive feedback every six weeks to discuss your progress and to set achievement targets. All of our programmes are planned around your individual learning needs, with a timetable that clearly identifies the sessions that will be taught. You will be assigned a Programme Lead who will support you throughout your time in College. Teaching, coaching and learning support staff will work closely with you and your parents/carers to help you achieve planned learning goals.

100% attendance is expected for the duration of the course. Non-attendance to any sessions may result in the overall qualification not being achieved. Continued non-attendance to any timetabled sessions may result in you losing your place on the course.

You can progress onto other entry level programmes at the same or higher level.
