The college offers individual programmes within a curriculum that has strong emphasis on personal development through a clearly assessed pathway framework. As well as offering discrete courses provided internally within the college, the college also offers students the opportunity to work within the community with local partnerships and employers.
Each student accesses an individual programme that is based on a combination of course choices that are tailored to meet individual needs and aspirations, identified through their person centred PATH (Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope) planning and support assessments.
Student progress is monitored through achievements made against Expected Outcomes and steps to achievement. A strong trans-disciplinary team that includes; Speech and Language Therapists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and a Behaviour Specialist, ensure a holistic and embedded approach to supporting learning and achievement.
Students are assessed into one of the following five pathways:
The framework for internal achievements and external accreditation is regularly revised to ensure it is relevant to students ongoing transition needs, supports progress and recognises achievements in a meaningful way to the students.
Evening and weekend provision
To support and continue the learning happening during the formal curriculum, the college offers a range of informal leisure activities during evenings and weekends that enhance the students’ level of participation and engagement.
Evidence of learning outcomes
Students’ achievements are captured throughout a range of college processes that include Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement (RARPA) recording of progress, achievements against Expected Outcomes, steps to achievement on the Management Information System (MIS) and electronic recording of progress against criteria set out by awarding bodies. Regular student tutorials are held by Pathway Co-ordinators and the students trans-disciplinary team of advocates, annual reviews, progress demonstrated against therapy protocols and reports of progress provided to stakeholders. The college makes excellent use of audio and visual recording of evidence of achievements via ‘e-portfolios’ and ‘personal portfolios’ and these can be ‘posted’ into either by students themselves or their advocates.
