The Gateway/IC pathway is for young people aged 16 – 24 who have a variety of complex needs. They may have ASD, high sensory needs and limited communication skills. This pathway is uniquely built around the learner, their needs and their plans for the future.
Working almost exclusively on a 1:1 basis with a Learning Support Mentor, the Gateway to IC programme offers a variety of experiences and learning opportunities to help develop independence, communication, employability skills and community engagement.
Young people accessing this programme need to have an EHCP and be able to manage being part of a specialist department within a mainstream college. Your needs will be assessed by an experience specialist teacher to ascertain suitability for this programme.
A planned transition will be developed between your current setting and college staff.
The opportunity includes the chance to work with supported employment partners with a focus on developing confidence in settings that may become part of your adult care services package. For more details contact: Alison Goold – Head of Supported Learning Gareth Davies – EHCP Reviewing Manager
