About the course
For students under 25 that have profound and complex learning difficulties, the Sensory Learning programme aims to help young people to move from life at school into the adult world. It is offered as a series of half-day and whole-day sessions, which may be combined to make up either a full-time course (3 days per week) or part-time course based at South Bristol Skills Academy. The course aims to enable and encourage students to respond and communicate with those around them by developing communication skills, making choices and expressing themselves creatively through taking part in group activities. The course will also aim for the students to engage in a variety of sensory experiences.
There are no formal entry requirements. All you need is to attend a meeting to make sure that the course is right for you and that your support needs can be met before being offered a place. If you aged 19-24 you need to have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) saying what you are working towards at college and what support you will need.
