Gateway Assured Learning Programme

Gateway insert page

We believe Independence Matters! 

We are passionately committed to valuing and supporting you to develop the skills you need to achieve and sustain the level of independence that is right for you.

Our Gateway accredited learning programme has been written specifically and specially for people with a learning disability and is externally validated to make sure the learning makes sense and the achievements are quality assured. 

Gateway offers learning in three categories, Independent Living, Wellbeing, and Employment. These are made up of modules that include Independence, Employment, Project Planning, Horticulture, Community Safety, and Wellbeing & Care. Each module consists of task-related units which make the learning more achievable.

You can choose to work on all of a module or just part of it, and this can be a part of your support and care plan where we agree between us the outcomes we will work on, together.  We learn by doing, not by sitting in a classroom - so it's all very hands on and lots of fun!

Please do get in touch if you would like to know more.
