  • Rigorous initial and diagnostic assessment to ensure you’re placed on the right level/course

  • Regular progress checks with continued support
  • Additional support wherever required to meet your individual needs. This can be discussed during initial interview, on programme and throughout the year

  • Having the practical skills to succeed in further learning, employment and life in modern society
  • Applying knowledge and understanding to everyday life
