Young Learners

We can support your study programme

We offer full-time Study Programmes that are designed to prepare you for adulthood. They combine a specialist qualification, with skills including English and mathematics as well as preparation and participation in employability. The Study Programme has been developed because we want to help everyone leaving school become well prepared for the workplace and higher education.

Through person centred approaches, we provide bespoke courses for learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), specialising in supporting young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs.

Study Programmes are for young people who are aged 16-18 (if you are 19+ and have an EHCP you are funded as a 16-18 Study Programme Learner).

We can support your Traineeship

A traineeship is a flexible education and training programme with work experience that unlocks the great potential of young people. It prepares you for your future career by helping you to become ‘work ready’.

Traineeships are designed to help young people aged 16 to 24 who don’t yet have the skills or experience needed to get an apprenticeship or job.

We can support your Internship

Supported internships are a structured study programme based primarily at an employer. They enable young people aged 16-24 with a statement of SEN, or an Education, Health and Care plan to achieve sustainable paid employment by equipping them with the skills they need for work, through learning in the workplace. Supported internships are unpaid, and last for a minimum of six months. Wherever possible, they support the young person to move into paid employment at the end of the programme. Alongside their time at the employer, young people complete a personalised study programme which includes the chance to study for relevant substantial qualifications, if appropriate, and English and mathematics.

We can support your Apprenticeship

If you are studying an Apprenticeship we are able to offer you learning support on a bespoke basis in line with your individual needs.
Please discuss your needs with our Learning Adviser.
