Romney Resource Centre - study programme

The Study Programme is rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted and works to the standard academic calendar but in every other way feels very different to school or college. It offers young people aged 16 – 18 (and 19 – 24 with an EHCP) the chance to build up their personal, social and academic skills and confidence so that they can move on positively with their lives.

In a small, calm, friendly and supportive environment, our specialist team deliver sessions in work and life skills, personal development, English and Maths over a full timetable of learning and activities. All of our young people gain experience of the world of work through guest speakers, outings, taster work sessions and placements according to their personalised plans. Each individual works towards their own personal and academic goals over the appropriate period of time. Entry level 3 - Level 2 in Functional Skills qualifications and GCSEs in English and Maths can be achieved under the Study Programme. All of our young people also have access to a SENCo, a qualified in-house counsellor and will be mentored and supported according to their needs by all staff.

Typically the graduates of The Study Programme move into traineeships, apprenticeships, college or employment and it is the normal practise of the staff to stay in touch beyond graduation to offer support and advice as required. Depending on circumstances, bursaries are available to help cover transport, lunch and other costs that might prevent a young person from attending the course.
