Foundation Studies

Our courses are suitable for students with few or no formal qualifications, who require support to help them work towards a specific goal or gain a qualification.

GOLDD Project - Great Opportunities: Learning Difficulties and Disabilities.
We are working with Barnet & Southgate College to support young people, aged 16-24 years, living in west London boroughs who are not in education, employment or training and who have a disability and/or learning difficulty. The project is to help young people find a way back into education, employment or training through information, advice and guidance

What’s it like in Foundation Studies?

  • Our courses are offered at various levels and designed to provide support to help students develop their skills, whatever their needs or starting point.
  • Students gain a range of basic and life skills such as numeracy and literacy, money management, developing confidence and study skills.
  • Many students progress onto other courses at the College, into employment or onto further training.
  • Friendly staff provide a supportive and caring environment and are on hand to help students meet their challenges.
  • We encourage students to get involved and take part in enterprise activities which have included, making products to sell, setting up and staffing a stand selling Christmas cards and gifts, baking biscuits to sell and raising money for charity.
  • Preparation for the world of work is important and there are units to help students apply for jobs and interview practice, with the support of our Employment Coach.
