Our courses

We want our learners to achieve independence and the skills they need for the career, which they aspire to have.

Covering a broad range of subjects, we offer courses in:

  • Social enterprise
  • Personal progression

All our Skills for Life programmes are supported by trained and experienced lecturers and learning assistants. Delivered in a safe and nurturing environment, students are able to continue their education after leaving school.

Extracurricular activities and enrichment

We believe in students receiving an enriching experience when they come to college. Being involved in activities outside of studying not only develops their social skills but also supports their overall wellbeing.

Totton College and Chelsea FC Foundation have a long history in supporting students with special educational needs (SEND). As part of our association with Chelsea FC, the Chelsea FC Foundation will deliver two training sessions per week to develop our SEND student’s football skills and fitness.

All SEND leaners are eligible for this activity, and we actively encourage those who have an interest in sport to participate.

Our Specialist Education needs department also host a wide variety of activities for charity fundraising and as part of work experience. Students are able to learn new skills such as baking, hospitality, sales and gardening. We actively encourage students to work in small groups to build their confidence and make new friends.
