Kehelland College is the name for our education arm based on site here at the Trust—we provide specialist education to young people and adults with learning and/or physical disabilities. We currently deliver a course in progression for learners aged 16-24 with an EHCP, and Independent Living Skills courses to older learners aged 25+.
We are a small, dedicated team of tutors and learning support staff. We work closely with learners in the classroom, either on a one staff-two learner basis or a one-to-one basis, depending on the learner’s support needs. Our support approach is regularly reviewed at team meetings to ensure we’re providing the best possible support for our learners.
Learners on our ‘Flourish’ and ‘Bloom’ programs attend Kehelland three days a week. The classroom sessions are held on two of these days, with the third day being focused on work experience.
We run our courses in small groups, up to a maximum of 12, because we feel this gives us the best opportunities to focus our attention and support onto our learners, and to identify where learners need additional help or support in the classroom.
Our classroom is carefully set up for our needs, including a washing machine, oven, and kitchenette – essential for our lessons and units covering household skills, basic cooking and food safety.
Each of our learners has the use of a laptop, and we use assistive technology where appropriate to further support our learners’ use of IT for their work.
