Northampton College's purpose is to provide high- quality further education, training, and associated services to Northamptonshire people and businesses. The college's mission is to enhance the lives of students and other customers, maximising their potential through learning.
Northampton College provides specialist education for students with learning disabilities, by providing courses that respond to their real needs and aspirations. The supported learning department is a discrete provision within the college that gives young people the safety and security of supported learning. Discrete provision is specifically designed to meet students’ individual needs and is delivered in a more supported environment. All of our students have direct access to the inclusive facilities such as the library, the gym, student and staff common areas, and the restaurants. Northampton College is also committed to the end-goal of young people gaining employment. This is pursued in a variety of ways, such as work experience placements and supported internships.
Northampton College welcome students of all ages and abilities, and will focus on helping you to decide on the best type of study, whether you would benefit from studying vocational subjects or following an academic course. All areas of the college are accessible for all students on all floors.
Assistive technology is available and further resources will be sourced dependant on student's needs.
If you have disabilities or additional needs, Northampton College wants you to know you’ll be well supported. Their Additional Learning Support Team offers help and guidance, whether you have health problems, learning difficulties, physical or learning disabilities, or problems with reading, writing, or mathematics. Within the Additional Learning Support Team there is a considerable body of knowledge and experience in areas such as autism spectrum disorder, Dyslexia, sensory impairments, communication difficulties, and social, emotional, and mental health difficulties.
Northampton College will make all reasonable adjustments to their provision, ensuring students with learning difficulties or disabilities are not disadvantaged on their sites. Contact the Additional Learning Support Team on 01604 734321.
Northampton College strive to ensure their deaf and hearing-impaired students are given equal access to college life and the curriculum by offering extra support for students, including British Sign Language (BSL) or Signed Supported English (SSE) in lessons. Portable one-to-one loops are available to use around the college from the Additional Learning Support Team.
