St Piers College provides an individual approach to teaching. Learner groups typically include five or six students, and each student follows an individual programme tailored to their needs.
We encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning and, with staff support, they help to set their own goals and targets. We monitor and revise targets so students can recognise the progress they have made and take on greater challenges.
Our highly motivated, multidisciplinary team work closely with each young person to support their progress and make the most of their abilities and talents. Much of our work is about developing confidence, communication and advocacy skills and building mobility, personal care and life skills.
The college focuses on developing the skills and talents of each student. We provide individually structured programmes for young people who have epilepsy and other conditions, and who need additional support to cope with the emotional and social demands that this places on them.
We develop confidence and skills which enable a high proportion of our learners to integrate into mainstream college with additional specialist support.
St. Piers College is part of Young Epilepsy. Young Epilepsy is the operating name of The National Centre for Young People with Epilepsy Charitable Trust.
