Industry leading courses

Our foundation learning programmes are aimed at individuals who may be unsure about what career pathway they want to follow.

Throughout your chosen course, our tutors will support and encourage you to develop both your personal and employability skills; building confidence and learning about which career path is right for you. You will be given the opportunity to access a variety of educational visits and group community-based activities, and at the end of your programme, you will be able to attend personalised celebrations of your achievements.

There are no entry requirements for our Foundation Learning programmes, however, you must be willing and able to learn and engage in a variety of vocational and personal development activities.

There is no greater joy than meeting past students who progressed through our courses and who are now employed, living their lives to the full.
