The College offers a wide range of courses for students at Levels 2 and 3, as displayed in the College prospectus and on the website. Applicants undergo initial assessment, to determine which study programme best suits their need, and what, if any, additional support is required.
The Study Support Manager attends Year 11 Annual Reviews/Transition Meetings at partner schools to collect information on prospective students and ensure a smooth transition. The college provides a wide range of support including classroom-based support and intervention in one-to-one and small group settings.
The college works within the examination board guidelines to put into place appropriate Access Arrangements. Individual teachers are responsible for making lessons accessible to all.
Progress Monitoring and Review
The College will work with the local authority as required for review meetings with learners with Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plans. EHCPs will be reviewed on an annual basis in line with statutory guidance for reviews.
Progress of other students with SEN support needs is regularly monitored in line with college assessment procedures. Internal tracking systems are used to highlight progress of individuals as well as identified groups. Progress data is shared with parents three times each year, in written format as well as face to face at Consultation evenings.
The Study Support Manager is available to discuss individual students at any point and parents and prospective students are able to visit the college prior to enrolment to view the facilities and discuss support.
