Ambitious College - Specialist Day College

Ambitious College

Ambitious College

A day college in London for young people with autism and complex needs.

The college opened in September 2014 and is dedicated to supporting young people with autism aged 16–25. The College offers young people specialist education and support and provide the vocational and community-based opportunities they need to make a successful transition to an active life in their community.

The Curriculum:

The majority of learners access college five days a week for 40 weeks of the year. The college day starts at 9.30am and ends at 4pm.

Where possible, learners will be supported in setting their own learning targets. These will always relate to the outcomes in the learners’ Education, Health and Care plans (EHCP).
Functional skills such as communication, literacy, numeracy and ICT are developed and embedded throughout the entire curriculum. We support our learners to acquire these skills through ‘doing’ rather than in a more traditional classroom-based model, as we know that is how they learn best.

The college deliver personalised programmes of learning which follow the four pathways developed by Preparing for Adulthood:

  • Employment
  • Independent living
  • Better health
  • Friends, relationships and community
