Functional skills

Students' quality of life is significantly improved by developing functional skills which support their educational progress. Students are able to express themselves more confidently, solve problems, make choices and engage with their environments.

To help students prepare for life after college, we make sure skills like maths, English and communication are embedded in the timetable.

Technology plays a big part at the college too. Wherever we can, we use tools like iPads and iPods, interactive whiteboards and audio visual equipment, which the students love.

Our state-of-the-art media centre is one of our most popular facilities. With the help of a dedicated media technician, students have put on amazing drama productions and even made their own films.

All sorts of other brilliant projects have created too, including assessment tools based on video games and even programmes to keep track of students’ progress.
