Cambian Pengwern College offers various opportunities for external accreditation through the Qualifications and Credits Framework (QCF).
We provide flexible routes to full qualifications and offer units of study from pre-entry to entry level 3, leading to awards, certificates and diplomas.
The QCF is a key component in our work to help young people with a learning disability gain life skills. Self-esteem is essential to young people progressing into adulthood encouraging a passion for learning and broadening their horizons. By offering the opportunity to undertake nationally recognised vocational qualifications, we help young people gain confidence and to lead socially active and engaged lives.
We also offer options to improve literacy, numeracy and/or communication skills, such as the use of Makaton, communication in print, Grid player and Proloquo2go, with additional opportunities for work experience.
Learners are encouraged and supported to express their views on the things that are important to them about college life. Their input shapes the curriculum, staff recruitment, opportunities for personal development and the support they receive. This is achieved through learner tutorials comprising 1:1 meetings to discuss anything related to college life, on and off-site advocacy services and the Principal’s cards used for questions, comments or concerns.
