• Creating a Community Where Everyone Belongs


Flexible further education programmes for young people aged 16-24 with SEND

We will create a personalised support package according to your level of need and, focusing on what you can do, adapt our methods to ensure your personal outcomes are met, no matter how complex your needs or disability

We deliver learning at our 84 acre site in Standish, Wigan and offer a wide range of training programmes to enable you to prepare for adulthood and employment, make new friends and learn to live more independently

SEND educational courses can start at any time throughout the year and will support young people into Preparation for Adulthood (PfA) and Employment.

Our training programmes include:

  • Animal Care
  • Horticulture
  • Catering and Hospitality
  • Construction and Maintenance
  • Functional Skills (Maths and English)
  • Skills for Independence
  • Performing Arts
  • Employability
  • Personal Development
  • ICT and Multi-media
  • Drama and Dance
  • Sports and Outdoor Adventure
  • Setting up a micro enterprise
  • Supported Internships

We aim to offer an alternative to standard classroom based sessions by making learning fun, enjoyable whilst still being informative.

What does the programme look like?

Programmes are between 3-5 days per week and last for 38-48 weeks. A typical week would be something like: two days studying the core subject of your choice, and one day developing your skills for independence (including everyday literacy and numeracy). Any remaining days would be personal and social development, which will include a range of exciting, fun and adventurous activities.

Our courses are tailored for everyone. As part of your qualification you will study skills for independence, employment, and improve your maths and English in real practical situations.

Make your aspirations possible and your goals a reality.
