If you’re looking to continue developing your skills in a supportive, fun and friendly learning environment, our Foundation Learning courses are for you.

Everyone learns at their own pace and you may not be ready to commit to a specific course or career path. Perhaps you need more opportunities to develop your skills before moving on to further study or work. If so, one of our Foundation Learning programmes could be perfect for you.

Our courses are designed with you in mind and focus on developing your confidence. We support you in developing work and employment skills, and we have close working relationships with well-known companies such as Argos and Waitrose to support students in gaining workplace experience where appropriate.

Study with us and you will become a part of The College. You will learn in adult environment, in a highly regarded area where you can achieve your qualifications and our supportive tutors will help you to engage with learning, so that you can progress to the next level or on to work. Although your core studies will take place as part of a small group with lots of support, being part of the wider College community is also very important.

It's not all work though! We run plenty of enrichment activities both inside and outside the classroom, giving you the opportunity to meet new people and boost your confidence. You could be making goods to sell in the Foundation Studies shop, props for the drama group or artwork for an exhibition. You might spend some time outside the classroom volunteering with wildlife charities or completing the Duke of Edinburgh Award. The opportunities are endless.
