Candidates must be 16 - 18 and up to 25 with a Statement of Educational Need (SEN). There are no minimum entry requirements and students must be Entry Level to Level 1. Students can reside in any London borough. Places are free and all students receive free travel.
Students are entitled to 40 weeks training (which is one full academic year). Most of the students start in September/October and complete the course in July the following year. However, we offer a 'roll on roll off' programme and students can enroll at any time during the academic year (depending on availability of places). The courses do not run in August.
We offer Foundation Learning (three strands of learning; Personal, Functional, and Vocational) with City & Guild accredited courses:
Students move on to further education, training and/or employment. We have an excellent track record and our moving on rates range from 62% - 82% (60% is the average). Last year 75% of our students completed the course and have started FE or employment. We support leaving students and often maintain contact for several years.
We offer an intensely supported programme in a friendly environment that aims to engage students who have found mainstream provision inadequate. For more information or to make a referral contact Matt Brownlee.
