Oakley College is a registered charity and an exciting new development in the Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells district, which opened in September 2018 and is already proving successful.
Learning pathways 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.
Oakley College provision arises out of, but is different to, Oakley School – the District Special School for Tunbridge Wells & the surrounding areas. College students have diverse needs and come from a range of socio-economic backgrounds. Places at Oakley College are currently commissioned by Kent County Council and East Sussex County Council.
