      Learners work towards a selection of regulated and non-regulated qualifications (quality assured by RARPA) thus enabling them to gain skills in independent living, accessing the community, personal and social development and to achieve individual learning and social targets.

      Additional Facilities and Support

      Andrew Phillips Unit is highly supported and includes a kitchen, dining room, three classrooms, independent living room, a wet room and a sensory room. This enables us to meet the individual care needs of each learner. Learners are supported throughout the whole teaching day, including breaks and lunch, to encourage independence, confidence and self-esteem, thus enabling them to develop and retain life skills.

    • Work Experience

      We believe that the best way to get a real sense of your chosen industry is to try it out for yourself! That’s why all of our full time study programme courses include relevant industry work experience. It shows future employers you’ve got what it takes and are motivated to succeed. Not only does it look good on your CV, but it’s an opportunity to build up your confidence and industry contacts. Our Employment Hub works with over 500 local employers to ensure all students on full time study programmes have a high quality and meaningful work placement. So not only do you gain valuable work experience, it helps you decide on your future options, from choosing the right university course to finding the right employer. Work experience is a chance to you to spend time on an employer’s premises, observing the workplace, undertaking tasks (under supervision) alongside team members and learning the skills and behaviours needed at work. It’s designed to bridge the gap between your education and the world of work. It can help you to become aware of jobs you have not previously thought of, inform your career choices, develop your skills and help you gain the attitudes and behaviours expected at work. For more information on Work Experience, please contact our Employment Hub on 01283 494599 or email
