Our Courses

We have robust progression paths available, ensuring students are clear on their options for their next steps. Students learn in a friendly environment and are taught in small group sizes to ensure individuals are fully supported.


Diploma in Personal Progress – Entry Level 1

Foundation Route to Independent Living & Work – Entry Levels 2 and 3

FE Choices – Entry Level 3 and Level 1

FE Choices

FE choices is a unique Study Programme for students who are working at Level 1 and are unsure of the direction they wish to take. Delivered in encouraging taster sessions, students can pick and explore six subject areas based around their personal interests.

Successful completion of the FE Choice programme allows students to progress onto a full-time subject area at Level 1 or Level 2, an Apprenticeship, employment or voluntary work, or a Supported Internship.

Work Experience

Work experience is an important part of the Foundation Learning Study Programme. It helps to build students’ confidence in a workplace setting, develop new skills and helps them identify possible next steps after studying with us.
