Foundation Learning Independence Pathway: Personal Progress Towards Independence

This course is part of our FL Independence pathway, and is aimed to develop your independence. This is achieved through knowledge and skills that will support your transition to adulthood, with a clear focus on developing your personal progress in this area.

On this pathway you will work towards individual personal targets linked to different areas of independence, which may include:

Learning to travel by bus or train;
Independent living at home, e.g. basic home cooking skills or keeping the home clean and tidy;
Independent living in the community, which may include learning to go shopping or going to a restaurant;
Personal development, such as learning to keep safe and the importance of staying healthy.

We will work with you, your parents and carers in designing your programme of study, setting your targets and assessing progress inside and outside of College.

Our vision is to support you to be INDEPENDENT, CONFIDENT AND RESILIENT so that you are well-prepared to engage with the wider community. The Personal Progress Towards Independence course is a great way to develop in all of these areas.

If you are up to 24 years old and have EHCP (Education, Health and Care plan) you would be eligible to do this course.
