Recipe for Success
OUR SPECIALIST COLLEGE
Teachers at The John Dewey Independent Specialist College will go out of their way to engage their students and inspire them to grow and develop. There are three courses to choose from:
Go! FE provides multi-sensory teaching environment for learners who are working at or below Milestone 4. These learners often have a combination of needs including medical, behaviour and communicative alongside their learning disability.
Go! FE learners learn best through practical activities that enable them to learn cause and effect relationships between themselves and their environment.
Moving On is a practical programme aimed at developing skills for independent living and early employability skills in young people who have severe learning disabilities alongside a range of other support needs. Moving On students are typically working between Milestones 5 - 8.
Pathways to Work is a work preparation programme that offers graduates from Moving On, as well as new entrants to the college, the opportunity to build skills in specific vocational areas. The programme is complemented by classes to develop basic skills and employability skills alongside practical work experience.
