Inclusion Curriculum at Derby College (from SEN to Inclusion)

At Derby College we recognise that every student has different needs. Our Specialist Pathways ensure that people with learning difficulties and disabilities are well prepared for life and work.

An exciting new start

Our Pathways are designed to help you build a more independent lifestyle and develop skills for life and work. It’s all about building your confidence and preparing you for adulthood. You will find your time studying with Derby College’s Specialist Pathways enables you to make more informed choices, speak up for yourself and discover a new sense of control over your life.

Skills for work and life

As well as improving your abilities in areas such as English and maths, you will develop your personal and social skills. Pathway to Independence will support you to develop skills and confidence for living independently through a personalised programme. This includes learning experiences which will serve you well in the future, such as going shopping for food, using public transport and managing money. Pathway to Working Life will support you to develop skills and confidence for employment. You might take part in work placements, voluntary work in the community or enterprise activities to develop your communication and team skills.
