About Us

Welcome to KITE College

As the Principal of KITE College, I am proud to tell you about our learners and the real-world experiences we deliver to support them to meet their full potential. The world as we know it has changed significantly over the last three years and the challenges that will be facing young people as they enter the world of work seem to be even greater than they were a generation ago. We want to prepare young people for a complex and continually changing world, inspiring them to take the next step towards realising their aspirations with hope, confidence, and resilience.

We recognise that potential can be equally academic and vocational with constant emphasis on wider life skills. We celebrate progress in all forms:

• an ability to regulate emotions
• kindness
• teamwork
• positive attitudes to self and learning
• attendance
• behaviour
• positive relationships
• aspirations for the future

At KITE, the pathway is one which links skills for the world of work with a caring and exciting approach to teaching and learning.

We offer a unique combination of technical, academic and vocational programs of study, alongside support for learners to fully engage with learning and acquire the skills and qualifications they need to lead happy and productive lives.

Having achieved success at KITE College, learners leave us ambitious for the world of work.

We look forward to welcoming you in person and sharing in the success.


About KITE College

KITE College is an Independent Specialist Training Provider, for young people aged 16-25 with complex 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 areas such as : SEN Education and SEN Further Education.


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: Motor vehicle Technology, Construction Multi Skills (inc. Carpentry, Heating and Plumbing, Bricklaying and Tiling & Electrical), Hair and Beauty, Information Technology, and our Preparation for Learning programme.


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 complex learning difficulties.

All learners will have the opportunity to build on their independent living skills and skills for employability such as CV writing, interview skills and job searching.
