Advert

Oakley College is a registered charity and an exciting development based in Tonbridge, set up to meet the needs of young adults age 18-25 with learning difficulties or disabilities (LLDD), all of whom have Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plans. 

Our aim is to complement and work alongside existing providers in the area, to ensure that the needs and aspirations of all our young people can be met locally.

 Learning programmes include:

  • A programme of study and work-related learning and experience that will lead to further vocational training, internships/apprenticeships and employment.
  • A programme of study providing a further 1, 2 or 3 years for young adults to continue to develop their personal life and independent living skills so that they can contribute to society in a number of ways and live an independent or semi-independent life.
  • A vocational programme providing a further 1, 2 or 3 years for young adults to continue to develop their personal life and independent living skills so that they can contribute to society in a number of ways and live an independent life in a supported environment.
  • A bespoke programme of study for learners that require a total communication approach and may use AAC. This is a multi-sensory curriculum to enable the learners to communicate their needs in a supported environment.

 We are looking to recruit an Occupational Therapist who can enhance our learners’ college experience by supporting them to develop transferrable physical and developmental skills that enable them to be as prepared as possible for adulthood.
