Access Inclusive Learning and Skilled for Life

Access Inclusive Learning is designed to meet the needs of students who have moderate or severe learning difficulties who wish to continue their education.

Skilled for Life is an innovative course offered at Entry 3/Level 1 that provides students with the opportunity to experience a range of vocational sectors and learning experiences.

Access Inclusive Learning 

AIL focuses on the individual student; the timetable, target setting, review procedures and transition are person centred. At the end of the first year a Progression Pathway for each student is determined. The focus here is to develop communication skills, all aspects of self-care and making choices. The Supported Internship Programme is a two-day-a-week teaching programme that takes place at RCHT, Tescos or Children’s Hospice South West. It is an employment-focused transition programme that gives students the opportunity to develop key employability skills. Sheltered work opportunities are an integral part of the Pathway with an appropriate community placement at the end of the course. 

Skilled for Life 

Skilled for Life is suitable for you if you are preparing to work or gain sustainable employment, as you will develop the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the workplace. Work experience is organised for you if you are ready to work both in a supported environment and independently. Many of our students enrol on the course to gain the extra skills and qualifications needed to access further courses in the College. The flexibility of the course enables tutors to target your individual learning needs, which may have previously prevented you from accessing a Further Education pathway. You will also have the opportunity to study and gain accreditation in Functional Skills: Maths, English and ICT.
