About

RARPA (Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement) allows Foundation Learning programmes to be flexible and based on your starting point and what you want to achieve. We are all about the Learning Journey of each young person. As we are all unique. So is the journey. We will develop your essential skills such as independence, confidence, employability and wellbeing, whilst also adding maths, English and other skills which we will plan together along the journey.

Modules

  • RARPA is very different from traditional qualifications and you will plan your goals with your teachers. The development of real ‘lifeskills’ through projects, work experience and classroom based sessions will become the modules you will work towards. Maths and English skills are incorporated within each course and you will have the opportunity to work towards qualifications in these areas.

Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements. Places will be offered based upon an interview with one of the teachers and also a member of the Support team. We want to make sure that we can meet your expectations and support you in the best way possible.

Equipment

Depending on chosen subjects; safety boots and overalls may be required. Stationery such as pens, pencils, paper and calculator advised.

Next Steps

Candidates may progress through a short, mid or long-term journey. Progression may be to either further studies within the College Group, or employability. This is something that we will work on throughout your stay in Foundation.
