Welcome to KITE College
KITE College is an Independent Specialist training Provider, for young people aged 16-25 with learning difficulties. Through bespoke vocational learning programmes, we allow our learners to experience real college life in a purpose build facility at a smaller scale than mainstream colleges.
Our aim is to support young people with EHCPs to build confidence, develop independence and reach their aspirations to ensure them a safe passage into sustainable employment, further training and adult life. We do this in smaller groups where learning needs can be met and tailored around the individual’s needs as set out in the EHCP, and our learners will have access to support with their mental and emotional wellbeing with guidance from specialised staff.
KITE College is a charity supported by a board of trustees who have extensive experiences and credentials in SEN Education and SEN Further Education.
MAIN STUDY PROGRAMME
Learners can choose from a range of subject areas to suit their career goals and interests. We deliver courses across a variety of sector areas including: Welding and Fabrication, Motor vehicle Technology, Construction Multi Skills (inc. Carpentry, Heating and Plumbing, Bricklaying and Painting & Decorating), Hair and Beauty and our Foundation Learning programme.
MATHS AND ENGLISH
Maths and English are essential skills for everyday life as well as in the workplace. Learners who have not achieved a grade 4 (C) or above will be required to study these subjects as either Functional Skills or GCSEs. These will also be embedded into all vocational programmes relevant to the industry
Specialist trained and experienced staff provides all learners with the support they need to progress and achieve. Through small group teaching as well as personal support programmes, learners can build on their confidence and develop skills needed to become independent learners. All learners will have access to our Mental Health and Wellbeing service. We are experienced in working with young people with a range of disabilities.
CAREERS AND WORK EXPERIENCE
Through our Careers guidance and work experience within our programmes, learners will have access to a range of activities including work placements, experience of work within the college and employer visits to the college to share their insights into the world of work and industry knowledge.
