Sup­port­ed Learning

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.
