Oldham College offers 1 year personalised courses for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). Our entry level courses, Preparing for Adulthood and Preparing for Work, are both focused on the key outcomes around employment, independent living, community inclusion and wellbeing. 

These programmes will be very practical and based in our specialist teaching rooms or in real life settings out in the local community.

Teaching will be ‘tailor made’ to meet your individual needs and interests, and you will have the opportunity to access fully supported work experience within the College or a placement with one of our established providers in the community.
