Course Code: FD201
Do you like caring for animals or plants? Do you want to learn how to drive a tractor? Do you prefer to be outside and doing practical tasks? Would you like to have a go at all of these things? If the answer is yes then this course is perfect for you. We can help you develop practical, social and life skills - and gain a recognised qualification - all in the safe and friendly environment of the Centre for Foundation Studies which is based in the centre of the college campus.
You will learn subjects like large and small animal care and gardening to help you start to get a job or carry on in education, plus you can relax and socialise in small groups as you develop your social skills within the wider college community. You will have practical instruction and on-going assessment in a range of subjects, plus portfolio building. Practical assessments will be both oral and written. You will be placed in small groups with additional Learning Support.
We pride ourselves on working closely with you, your parents, carers and schools, to ensure we are able to offer the best support for you. Our teaching team are experienced in working with students who have specific educational needs and a range of support is available to ensure you get the best from your study programme. Transition to college is supported through Taster Sessions or Link Courses for students still at school and also through our exciting Summer School for prospective students.
