Treloar College is a specialist further education (FE) college which offers residential and day provision for learners with physical disabilities aged 16-25; many of whom also have communication needs, sensory impairments and/or learning difficulties.
We prepare all our students for their life beyond Treloar’s by working with the individual’s goals and aspirations to develop a bespoke programme that enable them to achieve their aims. We do this via four comprehensive pathways which are then individualised. These pathways are designed to support a range of learners working from Pre Entry Level to Level 3, enabling our students to fulfil a wide variety of further aspirations including access to higher education, independent living, increased choices and employment. Each pathway is not intended to be a rigid programme of what our students wish to achieve but a broad description which is then individualised to each student. Students may spend time across different pathways or move between them as they develop through their time with us. You can find more information about our different pathways in the menu on the left.
We embed multi-disciplinary working to every corner of our students’ day and all ensure both the curriculum and the environment is bespoke to their needs. You can find out more out our award winning multi-disciplinary working here. Our multi-disciplinary working was recently recognised for its excellence at the Natspec Awards.
We fundamentally believe in the abilities of our students and that by taking a holistic approach to their education that includes their therapeutic, nursing and care needs that they can go on to achieve their best. Our alumni have gone on to a whole range of activities from university education, to work in the voluntary sector, competing in the Paralympics, starting their own record label, living independently or joining residential communities.
Due to the bespoke nature of our curriculum during the admissions process we look to understand the young person’s aspirations, goals and work with their family and existing team to see how we can best support that within our programs.
