Supported Learning

Supported Learning01

We offer courses specifically designed to meet the needs of students between the ages of 16 and 24 who have a learning difficulty and/or disability, and to help them reach their potential.

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

If you join one of our supported learning programmes we will support you to increase your confidence, self-esteem, self-awareness and independence. You could potentially progress onto higher level courses as well. This could include supported internships, employability skills or other courses at Nottingham College.

We will help you develop independent living and employability skills that will increase your future opportunities and help you in your everyday life.

All our programmes include employability, vocational, personal and social development, maths, English and IT skills.

We have a flexible curriculum to meet the needs of students with higher support needs, and of course having fun and accessing great experiences are a given!

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

Small class sizes and integrated learning support, combined with tutors with specialist training and the experience to recognise and understand your needs, helps all our supported learning students to achieve.

We have specialist resources such as: a sensory room, accessible IT facilities, and accessible sports equipment. Whatever your level of need, we will help you to enjoy your time here and to succeed.

We have a well-equipped library, and our multi-purpose vehicles are used to help promote independent travel.
