Students follow an individualised study programme moving on to further learning, greater independence or employment. All full-time programmes have the following strands of learning:

  • A future work focus of Catering, Construction, Creative and Performing Arts, Customer Service & Retail, Health & Social Care or Sport – developing practical skills in your chosen subject area.
  • Functional Skills – working on your English and maths skills.
  • Tutorial, Enrichment and Personal Development opportunities.
  • Employability Skills & Work Experience

We have a large team of specialist staff who can assess the support needs of learners who identify themselves or are referred by tutors. The team provides support, specialist equipment and adapted resources. They are also responsible for arranging exam concessions and extra time for students with special educational needs, a disability or health problems.

For more information on local support for those with special educational needs and disability visit the Lincolnshire County Council website.
