Foundation Learning and Support
We pride ourselves on our excellent support and a range of specialist programmes from Entry Level to Level 2 allow us to cater for all learners' needs.
We help build your confidence, self-esteem, social skills and functional skills to help you achieve qualifications suitable for your ability. We ensure all students participate fully and equally and make necessary reasonable adjustments to allow you to reach your true potential and gain the most from your experience here at Exeter College. We are really proud of how our students progress either within the college or on to other local colleges, Apprenticeships or employment.
You will have full support in and out of the classroom with at least one support worker present at all times and there is always someone available for support in between lessons, for example, lunchtimes and break times.
The purpose built Ted Wragg building has bright, spacious classrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, IT suite, furnished flat to train independent living and easy access to the building and all floors. We have a Work Inspiration Team to help you on your path to employment. Contact us for more info.
Our Entry and Level 1 courses are designed to help you to progress to:
- A full Level 2 qualification
- Skilled work or an Apprenticeship
- Independent living or supported employment
- GCSEs or other similar level courses
Courses have an emphasis on developing the practical and work based skills that you use in the workplace. Practical work in specialist facilities, both at college and/or in work placements will support you to develop the skills employers want. You will also improve your self-confidence and communication skills throughout your course as you develop your knowledge and understanding.
