The Steps 1 study programme is for students who have complex learning difficulties and/or disabilities and require very high levels of additional support. The curriculum is varied and designed to enable students to make independent choices, develop their personal and social skills and to communicate effectively.
Delivery is through a student-centred approach involving a wide range of activities. This includes a high volume of practical based sessions, learning in the community and small group work. Students work towards completion of an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) which requires students to work towards achievement of challenging, achievable goals in order to fulfil their potential.
There is access to a wide range of specialist resources and facilities provides exciting opportunities for students to develop their skills in an active environment. Resources include training kitchens, sensory spaces and facilities to support the development of horticultural skills.
