Transition starts in June of the academic year in which the students are to start with us. We liaise with the schools professionals, families and students to agree a pathway of access, orientation and familiarisation. This strategy is also re-employed if the student changes their main course and when they are in their final year of their placement with us.
Transition planning to and from our college is vital and students are assigned a key worker to help manage this. Students are also encouraged to undertake fully supported work experience throughout their courses, and both formal and informal discussions take place on a regular basis with multi-professionals which cover looking for work and applying for university. The transition process is made as easy as possible for the young person and their families.
