“Leaders, managers and governors have high ambitions and expectations for  learners. Leaders and managers have developed a good curriculum offer which  enables learners to study one of four pathways: engagement and interaction,  maximum independence, preparing for employment, and vocational learning. As a  result, most learners benefit from an individually tailored and well-taught  programme that is based on their needs, aspirations and ambitions. Learners make  good progress and are prepared well to move from college to the next stage of their  life.”
