I chose Lambeth College because it is local to me and I had heard great things. I really enjoy being a student here and have made lots of new friends.
Entry Level College Certificate Independence - Practical Life Skills
Supported learning programmes are exclusively for students that have an Education Healthcare Plan.
With a dedicated focus on increasing both independence and employability, while also developing self-confidence and essential key skills, our Entry level 1-3 courses and personalised programmes are designed to enhance employability with real employers. With exceptional facilities, study resources, and industry links, and a wide range of teaching and learning strategies tailored to individual needs, we help students of all abilities realise and fulfil their potential.
All new and potential students should have an Education, Health, and Care (EHC) Plan prior to applying and, once they start their studies, will be set termly targets aligned with their EHC plan. Students will also have individual goals set according to their specific subject, and both sets of targets are regularly reviewed and parents/carers are invited to these termly review meetings.
We warmly invite all new students and their parents and/or carers to visit us at the College, for a taster session, to help with the transition to a new environment. This is a great opportunity to meet our dedicated staff, interact with current students, take part in a class, and generally find out more about college life.
While staff are always on-duty and providing supervision within the Supported Learning Department, our students are free to access all areas of the college, and we encourage them to explore beyond our department building. This is to help students develop confidence, independence, and communication, while giving them an opportunity to experience the busy and vibrant learning environment that surrounds them.
Alongside their chosen subject, all students will study English, maths, and information and communications technology (ICT), and also have the opportunity to take part in enrichment activities such as sports, dance or drama.
Every Supported Learning programme is personalised to meet individual needs, and backed-up by specialist equipment and resources tailored to both the student and the subject. With a maximum of 10 students per class, and with learning assistant support, specialist teaching staff, and access to speech and language therapists, sensory support, and other specialist interventions, everything is in place to help our students reach their full potential.
