FL Courses

Module main decoration

One of the many great things about Foundation Learning (FL) here at the Deaf Academy is all the different things it can involve and all the different destinations it can lead to.

In FL, as a student working towards Level 2, you can study a mix of nationally recognised qualifications in different vocational areas that interest you: e.g.: Art & Design, Hospitality & Catering, Creative iMedia or Health & Social Care. Your individual programme will support your progression towards your agreed destination.

Destinations include:

• full Level 2/Level 3 qualifications (BTECs / A Levels)
• open employment
• independent living
• supported employment
• semi independent/supported living

Foundation Learning can help you achieve your long-term aims. You can continue in Foundation Learning working through Entry Level, Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications to meet your needs.

Some learners stay in Foundation Learning to achieve their agreed destinations. Other learners make the transition from FL into our General Further Education (GFE) provision.

The Academy’s GFE provision allows you to work towards full vocational qualifications at Level 1, 2 or 3 at one of our partner mainstream colleges. Level 3 qualifications can then lead to Higher Education (HE) at university.

Just the same as FL courses, your GFE course can support you to work towards your agreed destinations.

Destinations can include:

  • Apprenticeships
  • Open Employment
  • Level 3 qualifications can then lead to Higher Education (HE) at university.
