About Us

Langdon College provides an exciting and flexible programme of study for students with learning difficulties, disabilities, social anxiety or autistic spectrum disorders, who are aged between 16–24 years and who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). 

As a Jewish College we ensure our students experience a supportive and nurturing environment. Our specialist team of professional teachers and support staff offer tailored education packages and programmes to meet individual needs and abilities. With a wide range of support, our students learn and gain crucial independence and life skills, while improving their confidence and making new friends.

We have residential and day provision available with sites in Manchester and London. Students attend college for 5 days per week, Mon-Thurs 9.30am – 3.45pm & Fri 9.30am – 12noon.   

Langdon College works closely with parents/carers, social workers and any other professionals to support students to achieve. We aim to break down any barriers to learning through a supportive and nurturing learning environment. Students are allocated a personal tutor who will provide them with outstanding pastoral support during their time at college.

We have a team of enthusiastic and supportive tutors and support staff who will guide students on their journey to achieve their goals, whether this is to gain work experience, increase your independence or gain appropriate qualifications.

We have a dedicated Job Coach who is there to source work placements and support students to develop employability skills in a real-life work environment. We can support students to attend work placements and monitor their progress.
