There are no formal entry requirements. You will be required to attend a guidance interview to find the most appropriate programme to meet your individual needs. All applicants will be assessed to ensure we are able to provide an appropriate and effective support package for you to access the College and the Sensory Skills programme.
We would expect for you to have an Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP) issued by relevant local authority to support your needs.
You will be supported to produce a record of achievement to demonstrate your skills, experience and development in each area of the programme. You will have your own personal tutor to help support and guide you to ensure all your needs are met effectively.
The programme is fully supported and endeavours to provide a positive and rewarding experience for each learner.
