• Supported Learning Opportunities

Welcome to the Learning Opportunities page!

We have a range of programmes that have been developed for students who need additional support to help them prepare for life after college or future college courses. 

All our courses have small groups, learning support assistants to help you at all times, flexible programmes to meet individual goals and access to specialist vocational facilities and an after-college club. 

To help you settle into the college and to make sure the course is right for you, we will arrange visits and taster days before the start at college.
