Pathways is a programme designed to develop Life and Work Skills and help students to become more independent. We can help you to get ready to start work, to live successfully in your local community or even move on to another course at the College that is right for you.

Pathways courses include exciting and interesting activities to help you learn. You will gain practical skills for life and work, learn about keeping safe and healthy and will get support with your English and maths skills. Pathways is a great place to make new friends in a safe and supported environment!

Designed especially for you

As you progress, the courses help you gain skills to live more independently and help you to decide what you would like to do when you leave college. Pathways courses are personalised to suit your learning needs and allow you to progress at a rate that suits you.

Supporting you in the future

College is different from school. It is a more grown-up environment and you will have more freedom about the things you do. But don’t worry, you’re not on your own; there will be teachers and other staff to help and guide you so that you are able to really enjoy being part of the College and become a successful young adult.

Come along and meet us

If you think that college is a good choice, why not come in to see us? We will explain the courses in more detail and will help you to join the right Pathway so that you are able to achieve your goals and get ready for the next steps.
