Students’ progress and achievements are recorded using a RARPA (Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement) process which is designed for those with special educational needs and disabilities. RARPA shows the real-time progress and developments our students make.

Our state of the art facilities replicate home surroundings – similar to our supported living houses – so students can gain familiarity and experience with household chores as well as learning skills for the workplace.

The course runs for three years, 9am -4pm  Monday to Wednesday for 36 weeks. On Thursday and Friday (Friday mornings in winter) work placements take place.
