Foundation Skills is designed to provide a more supported route towards vocational learning, independent living or supported work. Students with learning difficulties and disabilities, or students who have had support at school often study in Foundation Skills.

On our programmes you will gain confidence and develop practical skills for life and for the workplace.

All our classes are small and friendly with lots of support, whenever you need it. You can work at your own pace, and on some courses, have the chance to take extra certificates. Our students have even run a café in the local community, the Smiles café.

Key elements:

  • Maths and English
  • Work experience
  • Volunteering
  • Enrichment activities, for example: Duke of Edinburgh award, sport, IT and catering
  • Developing confidence
  • Getting involved in your community
