Our Supported Learning team offer courses specifically designed to meet the needs of students with a learning difficulty and/or disability between the ages of 16 and 24.
We offer flexible learning programmes from Pre-entry Level through to Level 1.
We will support you to increase your confidence, self-esteem, self-awareness and independence. You will improve your personal learning skills and potentially progress onto higher level courses. This could include supported internships, employability or other courses at Central. Importantly, we develop independent living skills that help support you in your everyday life.
All our programmes include employability, vocational, personal and social development, maths, English and ICT skills. We have a flexible curriculum to meet the needs of students with higher support needs and ensure having fun and great experiences are compulsory!
Enrichment activities include: residentials within the UK and Europe, supporting environmental projects, outdoor pursuits and sports of all kinds.
Small class sizes and integral learning support, combined with tutors with specialist training and the experience to recognise and understand your needs, helps all students achieve.
We have specialist resources such as: a sensory room, accessible ICT software and hardware and accessible sports equipment. Whatever your level of need we will enable you to enjoy your time here and to succeed.
