The Department of Learning for Living and Work is a specialist department in the College, for students with additional and complex learning needs.

Each student will follow a highly personalised curriculum, individual learning plan, work at an appropriate yet challenging level of Maths and/or English and enjoy learning about a number of topics in our weekly tutorial programme.

Students are grouped with peers who are working at a similar ability and in most cases, classes have no more than nine students in. Support workers are on hand to support and develop maths, English, reading and writing skills, encourage and promote participation in groups, allow students to work independently but also provide support to break down tasks where necessary. Staff are highly skilled and trained to support, stretch and challenge students in order for them to achieve their long term aspirations. Staff also provide support where students may need extra assistance such as feeding, personal care and way finding.
