Special Education Needs

Rawlins supports students with a variety of special educational needs across years 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14. Students are supported in mainstream classes with some students choosing a modified timetable which offers a vocational option. Some students are also offered an option which focuses on improving literacy skills. Students are encouraged to develop independence skills and take part in a wide range of college activities, including outdoor education. The Learning Support Department is the largest department in the college and aims to support staff and students to achieve their full potential and also to support students in moving on to further education or the workplace. The Learning Support Department assesses students for access arrangements for GCSE, GNVQ and A Level examinations and liaises with a large number of professional agencies. Stride is a unique full time, three year, Post 16 course for students who have moderate learning difficulties and are supported by a statement of Special Educational Needs. The course offers a secure base from which the students can access the challenges of appropriate inclusion. Students all have an Individual Educational Programme with a curriculum specifically designed for their needs. Within the base they are taught in small groups. The curriculum includes Academic Skills, ASDAN Life Skills and Independence Skills and those for whom it is appropriate can access Key Skills Programmes, GNVQs and GCSEs. Stride has two full time teaching staff, an HLTA, and three support staff with the addition of mainstream staff teaching in their areas of expertise. Learners with Learning Difficulties & Disabilities post 19: Since the early 1980s, the college has offered discrete courses for learners 19+ as part of its Adult & Community Learning Programme. At the present time, courses range from full-time transition courses for a full range of learners with severe learning disabilities through to those with complex health needs. It also offers part-time courses in a variety of curriculum areas which are negotiated in a person-centred manner as required by the Valuing People White Paper.
