Our iCan/Education programme is as the name suggests funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency. This programme is available to all aged 16-18 or 19+ if the individual has an education health & care plan. The programme funds attendance for up to three days a week.
Students on our iCan programme have the opportunity to access a wide range of sessions which are designed to not only build academic achievement but also the individuals personal and social and living skills. Students who are attending on a full time basis will undertake sessions in maths, English, ICT, personal and social skills and spend time in our work centre as a core part of their timetable. Dependent on individual students the programme maybe more independence skills focused or may seek to put more focus on their ability to develop their academic achievement. We offer qualifications within functional skills in English, maths and ICT and within vocational areas such as photography, cookery and art. Our functional skill and vocationally based sessions take place in small groups of 5-8 in size as do our sessions focused on accessing the community. All students who access our work centre we find their time there is focused on developing work skills that can apply to many areas such as team working, following instructions and communication skills.
Dependent on both student circumstances and progression within the course students may undertake work placements and alongside this undertake qualifications aimed at developing Employability skills. The iCan/education programme can be very flexible and adapt to individuals needs dependent on the individuals circumstances. Please contact us to find out about what we may be able to offer.
