Supported Learning

Supported Learning01

At Nottingham College, our Supported Learning team offers courses specially designed to meet the needs of students - aged between 16 and 24 - with a range of additional needs.

Whether you’ve left school with low GCSE grades, have no formal qualifications or have learning difficulties and/or disabilities, our supported learning programmes have been created to provide you with all of the support you need to progress through your studies at college.

We will support you to increase your confidence, self-esteem, self-awareness and independence. You will also improve your personal learning skills and potentially progress onto higher level courses. This could include supported internships, employability or other courses at Nottingham College. Importantly, we develop independent living skills that help support you in your everyday life.

All our programmes include employability, vocational, personal and social development, Maths, English and ICT skills. We have a flexible curriculum to meet the needs of students with higher support needs and ensure having fun and great experiences are compulsory!

Enrichment activities include: residentials within the UK and Europe, supporting environmental projects, outdoor pursuits and sports of all kinds.

Small class sizes and effective, specilaist training and learning support, combined with our ability to recognise and understand your needs, helps all students achieve.

We have specialist resources such as: a sensory room, accessible ICT software and hardware and accessible sports equipment. Whatever your level of need, we will enable you to enjoy your time with us and to succeed.

We have well-equipped libraries and IT facilities, access to vocational studies, as well as multi-purpose vehicles which we use for training to promote independent travel.

Levels

We offer flexible learning programmes, from Pre-Entry Level through to Level 1.
