What Will I Learn?

You will improve your maths and English, complete a work placement, engage in an Enterprise activity, experience volunteering in the community, practice travelling independently and follow an exciting programme of enrichment. If you have an Education Health and Care Plan, your timetable will also focus on the outcomes in Preparation for Adulthood.

Where Will It Take Me?

The focus on independent living skills will enable you to live in and engage with your community with or without support. You may also wish to explore further opportunities provided by Adult Social Care.
