Education 4 Independence

This provision is for learners with learning difficulties and disabilities who wish to gain independence and improve their life skills. The provision is open Monday to Friday for 50 weeks of the year. All courses focus on developing the skills and understanding required to become more independent, with learners working towards nationally recognised accreditation.


All courses are delivered by qualified teachers and supported by Learning Support Assistants to provide any additional one to one support which may be required. All classes use real equipment and artefacts and include out of classroom visits and trips which embed the learning.


Payment Method

We accept direct payments. Please contact your local Community Learning Disabilities Team to find out how. The courses can be purchased independently via your personal budget. Payment options are available.
