Opening September 2017
Aurora Boveridge College is an independent specialist residential and day college, offering a range of academic and vocational courses leading to employment, further and higher education in a spectacular location in the beautiful Dorset country side.
Who should consider Aurora Boveridge College?
Young people aged 16 to 25 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and would benefit from:
Small class sizes
Specialist therapeutic support
An innovative and interesting curriculum
This may be due to:
High Functioning Autism
Anxiety related conditions
Acquired Brain Injury
Mental Health conditions
To meet individual needs we can also offer bespoke educational programmes for those students with additional needs aged 14 to 16 years, who may be unable to attend regular mainstream education provision due to increased anxiety.
Aurora Boveridge College offers dynamic and purposeful educational programmes which take into account uneven learning profiles, which other colleges sometimes find difficult to adapt to. Qualification levels range from Entry level 2 up to and including level 3 (A levels).
All study programmes involve an academic or vocational course in one of the following subject areas:
Land based studies
Hospitality and catering
In addition, all students study Maths and English, Life skills (including vital independence skills) and attend work experience.
The therapy team offer a proactive multi-disciplinary approach to promote the best outcomes for each student. These are integrated into learner’s programmes and supported by tutorial and residential staff.
The therapy team consists of:
Speech and Language therapy
Learner’s who find it difficult to control their behaviour will be encouraged to work with the therapy team to formulate a behaviour support plan which will identify key triggers and calming strategies.
Some expressive behaviours maybe the result of underlying sensory difficulties and therefore a sensory profile will be completed as part of our initial assessment. During this assessment period we also gain an accurate picture of learner’s abilities, interests, aspirations and needs, to ensure that their study programmes enable them to achieve the best possible outcomes.
We provide up to 52 week residential placements. College accommodation will initially be on-site and comprises of:
Single Bedrooms (some en-suite)
Additional on site facilities include:
