Our supported learning programmes are developed for students with learning difficulties and offer a progression route to help prepare students for life after their studies.
During their studies, students will gain a broad range of skills, in areas such as English, maths, computing, personal development and employability. Our entry level courses include work placements or realistic work simulations, designed in partnership with local employers, ensuring students gain valuable, practical experience.
We offer small and supportive learning groups, with a comprehensive range of support programmes. Support Assistants are an integral part of each class, and students benefit from discrete teaching areas at the Aspire campuses in Dudley or Brierley Hill. All tutor groups have a dedicated personal tutor, who is the main link between home and other staff at the College and the first point of contact regarding a students’ academic achievement and personal welfare.
Many students progress from supported learning programmes onto other mainstream College courses, whilst others may move onto employability courses. With a dedicated support network, we can help students of all abilities develop personally and achieve their goals.
