Arbour House College follows the four pathways developed by the ‘Preparing for Adulthood’ framework. Further information can be found at their website.
Within our Life-Centred education and PHSE curriculum we work with students to develop skills and understanding around their health, self awareness, forming friendships and stay healthy.
There is a strong emphasis on supporting young people to develop employable skills. For some young people this may mean on independence skills, communication or staying safe. All students will have the opportunity to undertake work experience.
Independent living and housing
A large amount of the curriculum is delivered in the community through practical learning. Activities such as cooking, shopping and accessing the community is intrinsic to what we offer.
Friends, relationships and community
We recognise that communication and social understanding maybe a challenge and are conscious that forming relationships are part of everyday family life. The College is committed to a total communication approach to ensure students are able to communicate effectively in all aspect of their lives
