Skills Development

Literacy and numeracy are taught to all students and accreditation is offered from Entry Level 1 to Level 2. Individual sessions and workshops are available to support students, with skills embedded across all areas of the curriculum.

Students can study uncontracted and contracted braille in individual and small group sessions. Experienced braille users can learn to use braille technology to support further study and employment.

Students can develop their ICT skills within a variety of sessions across the College. Students with sight loss are taught how to use speech and magnification software by our specialist tutors.

Community travel and mobility skills increase confidence and independence, with students working towards individually agreed targets. Training includes personal safety, routes around College and the local community, and training on public transport.
