At the heart of the college’s mission, “Creating meaningful futures”, is the belief that all students, whatever their background or ability, will be successful and valued

The vision of the college is to create an aspirational and sustainable continuum of provision for students aged 19-25, collaborating with other colleges, voluntary organisations, community partners/employers, local business and industry.

The specific brief of the Future Finders Employability College will be to provide high quality innovative alternative vocational experiences for students across the 19-25 age range. This will ensure that learners will continue with their learning journey through a vibrant alternative offer. The provision will be linked to clear and aspirational adult outcomes, offering a continuing relationship with families until the young person reaches the age of 25.

Future Finders Employability College will work in partnership with students and their families to ensure a collaborative and consistent approach to personal/social development and learning. We will offer a wide range of support services and training programmes, which will include personalised support with communication and behaviour management strategies.

Our vision for the Future Finders Employability College is driven by a moral imperative to inspire and support students in achieving the most successful outcomes of which they are capable. It will encompass in detail:

  • a high quality, cutting edge alternative curriculum
  • provision of support services to the families of its students
  • high expectations of individuals linked to aspirational adult outcomes
  • an inclusive environment for students with Education, Health and Care Plans

Students attending the college will experience a personalised approach to their learning. They will be taught by staff sensitive to their needs, providing a nurturing and stimulating environment. The small scale of the Future Finders Employability College will ensure a familiarity between staff, pupils/students and families.
