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, nurturing and culturally appropriate learning 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.
Langdon College staff work closely with parents/carers, social workers, and other professionals to support students to achieve. Students are allocated a personal tutor who provide them with outstanding pastoral support during their time at college.
With a clear focus on the Preparation for Adulthood agenda, students are fully prepared for their next steps into adulthood, whether this is to gain employment/volunteer work, increase independence skills or gain qualifications.
Langdon College is committed to offering students an inclusive, multifaceted extended curriculum which provides the opportunity to Recognise and Record Progress and Achievement (RARPA) through the setting and assessment of individual targets.
Students targets are linked directly to the outcomes of the Preparation for Adulthood agenda of Employment, Independence Skills, Good Health and Friends, Relationships and Community. As well as linked to individual EHCP outcomes and aspirations.
Students are assessed using a variety of methods which will ensure they are given the best opportunity to demonstrate your skills; this may be through discussion, observation or practical activities. Students may complete a portfolio of work which will be assessed throughout the year and may also be entered for English and maths exams when appropriate.
Leisure and Social Development
We want students to enjoy their time at Langdon College and as part of the course, students have the opportunity to take part in lots of trips and visits to help to develop their confidence and skills when out in the community.
Langdon College’s leisure and social development programme is an important feature of college life; developing students’ self-confidence and encouraging students to build friendships. Students are able to enjoy a variety of sporting activities including football, swimming and gym sessions.
Students who are ready to leave college will progress onto the Transition Pathway. This involves spending more time accessing external provision, work placements and the local community, to prepare for the change of routine.
Students who have previously left college have secured paid employment, volunteer work, transition into support living and/or go on to complete further education and training.
During students Annual Review meetings, detailed discussions are made to ensure there is an appropriate transition in place for students as they leave.
