Supported Learning

Supported Learning - Mental Health provision

Did you know that returning to education can improve and stabilise your mental health?

We offer a variety of courses tailored to suit people with mental health conditions which meet a range of interests, learning needs and progression opportunities. We recognise that those with mental health needs sometimes feel they need a more supportive environment that mainstream courses can offer.

Deciding to return to college offers an exciting beginning and the chance of a new direction in life. College offers you the opportunity to widen your knowledge, learn new skills, gain qualifications, increase your social circle and help bring structure to your life.

After only a short time at college, students say they can feel their confidence beginning to grow, enabling them to take advantage of extra-curricular activities and our new work experience programme.
