Foundation and Inclusive Learning

Ensuring your young person gets the best education and the right support to continue their progression is core to our Group’s approach.

In order to achieve that, we’ve designed a range of courses which ensure your young person develops the skills they need to progress seamlessly through our curriculum offering.

Accessibility Statement

Our aim is to support students to learn the skills to manage personal challenges and to enable students to have greater independence in their learning and personal lives.

Teaching Principles

After we’ve reviewed their needs, we’re committed to providing an appropriate level of support for your young person.

We’ll draw information from their Education, Health and Care Plan, and other sources, to ensure the necessary support is put in place.

We use the RARPA (Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement) structure for all of our life skills programmes, with a baseline assessment to evidence your young person’s development.

This is a personalised approach to learning to prepare your young person for adulthood.

Opportunities

Students are able to experience college life whilst building confidence and gaining the skills and qualifications required for their progression. This enables them to gain a better understanding of the expectations and options open to them.

Students are able to experience a wide range of our vocational areas in small groups, including but not limited to; Catering, Construction and Creative and Design.

Get into the Community

We ensure students get to explore the local community regularly. This allows them to learn about the area, different organizations, and exciting enrichment opportunities available.

Recently ‘Discovery’ students took a trip to the local fire station, where they had a guided tour, explored some of the equipment and even took part in some target practice with the hoses.

We’re part of six community-based colleges

Our mission is to play a leading role for East Kent in developing the economic and social prosperity of the diverse communities we serve.
