Short Courses

Who is the programme for?

Students over the age of 19 years old without an EHCP. This programme is all about taking part in developing your social skills, increasing your confidence and independence as well as making new friends.

What are the entry requirements?

We would like to meet you for an assessment before you join us at college to make sure this is the right programme for you. You must not hold an active Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or be in full time employment and if you are over 24 years old you will need to be in receipt of benefits to qualify for funding.

About the programme

There are different sessions offered on this programme they are;

  • Creative arts
  • Horticulture
  • Digital Skills
  • Hospitality and Catering

You will also have opportunities to:

  • Work with new people
  • Develop your social skills
  • Get involved in enterprise projects
  • Explore ways to make new friends in a safe environment

Here’s how we will achieve it together

We want you to be as independent as possible and throughout your time with us we will support you to make new friends, try new things at college and in your local community.

We will support you to identify and access a range of opportunities.

Our short courses are offered in Southwark, Sutton, Kingston and Hillingdon areas.


You will need to attend the course with your carer/support worker if necessary who will be responsible for medical and any other needs. We have worked with:

  • HACS
  • Merton Mencap
  • Kissimul Homes
  • Harrow Mencap
  • Kingston Mencap
  • Bede House

Outcomes for learners are outstanding, teaching, learning and assessment are excellent and the extremely diverse programmes that meet learners’ individual needs, interests and aspirations, prepare them very well for life after College.
