This course is for young adults who have an EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan) and have profound and complex learning difficulties.
The programme is designed and delivered in a supportive environment, aimed at improving communication and meeting their individual academic, therapeutic, personal, and social needs, varying in length and duration determined by the needs outlined in the EHCP.

The provision may also include opportunities to access speech and language therapy, hydrotherapy, physiotherapy, the sensory room, and external/community activities. Students will also benefit from a high student/staff ratio which allows for individual and personalised learning to take place.
