Course Details

  • This bespoke course is tailored to the needs of students with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan, who may have complex learning difficulties and a strong desire to become more independent.

    It’s suitable for those who can follow instructions and routines, and already have some social awareness. We’ll design this course around their specific needs and abilities, helping them to develop essential communication and life skills and learn the abilities they will need to live independently.

    We’ll build activities and tasks into individual transition plans, including access to facilities in the local community, travel training, how to use money safely, and how to take care of themselves. They will also learn how to look after their health and be aware of dangers, as well as improving their English and Maths functional skills, if appropriate.

    Work Experience is a vital part of the course and you will be supported in finding a work placement relevant to your study.

  • Throughout the course, the learner’s actions and development will be continually monitored and reviewed, with a portfolio of evidence built up. Learners will attend a person-centered review with multi-agency workers to assess progress against EHC plan targets.

  • Depending on the aspirations of the individual student, we have a number of additional supported learning courses here at The Manchester College to help develop skills and abilities in a personal, supportive way.

    Students could go onto to our Routes To Learning, Routes to Skills or Routes to Employment courses, with our full help and guidance along the way. They may even wish to pursue volunteering opportunities and continue their work towards independent living.
