Post 16

A great emphasis is placed on personal and social education and developing skills associated with independence and self-advocacy, externally accredited courses are taken where appropriate.

A variety of Link Courses are offered with local providers and colleges. Students are given the opportunity to take part in Work Experience with their destination pathway being an integral part of their person centred plans. Staff work in conjunction with the LD advisers, the transition team (social care), parents and students, to establish the most suitable post school provision.

We consider the use of educational visits, education in the community, educational opportunities at other establishments and longer stay residential experiences (PGL, Bendrigg Trust, Calvert Trust and D of E camps) an essential element of our students overall educational entitlement. They enable our students to learn, develop, practise and generalise their learning in realistic settings and other environments.
