Preparing for Adulthood
Our goal is to ensure every student leaves College with the qualifications, skills and experiences they need to be successful in their adult lives. We know that for some students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) this sometimes needs a more focused approach and therefore we are committed to following the Preparing For Adulthood Agenda. All of our students with SEND will receive support to work towards Preparing for Adulthood outcomes linked to Employment, Making Friends and Being Active in the Community, Living Independently and practising Good Health. For more information about the Preparing for Adulthood Agenda, please see the national site: www.preparingforadulthood.org.uk.
