Curriculum overview

Prepare young people to move successfully into adulthood; lead enriched, independent lives, in supported housing where appropriate and possible. Access to work and social opportunities in which to build friendships; to be confident in their use of health care and well-being services and to be an integral part of their local communities.

The curriculum will be based on the following preparing for Adulthood outcomes:

  • Employment
  • Independent Living
  • Community Inclusion
  • Health

English, Maths and IT are important skills to develop and use to make daily life easier, so the chance to reinforce these and improve grades will be offered. 

Specialist features

The unique feature of this provision is to genuinely provide experiential learning that can be embedded in daily life.
