Alternative Learning Pathways (Alp’s)
Being treated as an individual
Every Child Matters
The Alps centre is located in a classroom in the heart of the college and offers a safe, calm, nurturing environment; supporting students with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.
Students who are identified and referred to the Alps will follow an individual timetable and be supported in their own individual learning. Students are given the opportunity to build relationships whilst working on a one-to-one basis on specific issues, difficulties or needs they may have or they may attend specific targetted group sessions. Students may have the opportunity to attend physical activities, SEAL art programmes, outwards bound activities (such as canoeing, rock climbing, orienteering) and will have access to a variety of multi-agency services.
The ultimate goal is always for students to return to full-time mainstream lessons and parents/carers are kept informed and their full support is needed.
Whilst in the Alps, students will follow a programme underpinned by the SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) principles, aimed at:
Team Building Skills
Building on Social Skills
Keeping safe and healthy
