Tier 2: Pathway to Independence and Supported Work

This programme provides for individuals with severe to moderate learning
difficulties who want to continue to build on
essential skills for living, employment
and community.

We create supportive and stretching learning
environments in which learners are encouraged
to take ownership of their learning and develop
their confidence and independence so they can
make progress towards their EHCP outcomes
and beyond.

assessments and a young person’s EHCP
outcomes. The college will provide a
supportive, stimulating and realistic
environment for you to progress
as an adult.

Some learners may undertake a formal
qualification at Entry level. Most learners
will have a programme based on their own
individual starting points and needs which is
tracked and monitored in a variety of ways
including Recognising and Recording Progress
and Achievement (RARPA).

Individual targets
are negotiated and set with learners, carers
and therapists.
There are different pathways in this programme
which will ensure it is tailored to your EHCP
outcomes, aspirations and support needs.

Progression will be explored at your annual
review. Learners move on to supported
employment courses or Adult Social
Care provision.

We would like to get to know you as soon as
possible, sometimes even two years before
you are due to leave school. We run transition
programmes and taster days to assess your
needs, but also to make transition as smooth
as possible.

Suitability for the programme will
be assessed by the college SEND team and
via a local-authority consultation process.
