Bexhill College Skills For Life Courses

We specialise and have a great deal of experience in offering qualification courses designed specifically for adults with learning difficulties. We have a range of courses at a variety of different levels depending upon the ability of the learner. All courses are accredited, portfolio based and certificated.

h3>Courses offered for 2016-17 are:
  • Employability - a course designed to improve a student's skills and qualities and develop an understanding of the workplace and job opportunities, whether as a volunteer or as a paid worker. The levels for study range from Entry Level 2, Entry Level 3 and Level 1.
  • Life and Living Skills - allows a student to develop and become aware of their community and improve their personal and social skills when living and working in the community. The levels for study are offered at Entry Level 2 and Entry Level 3.
  • Personal Progress - is an Entry Level 1 qualification and is made up of units which broadly fall into the following categories: personal development, literacy and numeracy. Progression leads to Personal and Social Development and employability qualifications.

In addition, we offer courses centred on developing personal and social skills, self-advocacy, literacy and numeracy whilst studying one or more of the following areas of interest: IT, photography, horticulture, looking after animals, wildlife, music and performance. These courses are available from Entry Level 1 to entry Level 3.

All the above courses consist of up to 4.5 hours per week of study over 34 weeks.

All Skills for Life courses are free but students are required to pay a registration fee.
