Program of Study
Our courses for individuals with learning disabilities are made up of two programs of study, named ‘Flourish’ (Year 1) and ‘Bloom’ (Year 2). Both of these are year-long programs that will run in term-time from September 2019. Our current group of learners will progress from ‘Flourish’ to ‘Bloom’ and a new classroom group will begin their time with us studying the ‘Flourish’ course. They will study a range of subjects ranging from Accessing Public Transport and Food Preparation to Garden Horticulture and Time Management.
Each program comprises of between 5 – 7 units throughout the year, focussed on a range of practical life skills. We are constantly evaluating our provision to ensure we are delivering appropriate, meaningful and achievable subjects across our learner group. We are striving for progression for our learners; to provide them with the knowledge they need to gain skills and grow in confidence.
Both our program of study groups will also spend some time on English and Maths skills, with lessons geared towards practical skills.
Adult Groups (aged 19 and over)
We also provide courses to our older learners, taking place one day per week, focusing on Independent Living Skills. Therefore, topics on these courses include Basic Food Preparation and Food Safety. Above all, it means our learners make some tasty food, and even enjoy a trip out to a local restaurant. We have also begun a Digital Skills course, focussing on basic computer skills such as sending an email and searching the internet. We’re delighted to help our older learners acquiring brand new skills through our courses.
We’re proud to provide courses tailored to learning disabilities at Kehelland College, and we’re passionate about delivering the best possible education.
