We recognise that each student learns in their own unique way. The Head of Education and team of qualified lecturers offer a wide range of teaching styles so that learning potential can be maximised to achieve a level of individual success.
This success comes in many forms through the delivery of accredited and non-accredited courses. Vocational skills for life are taught through independent living, leisure activities, computing skills and creative opportunities.
The broad curriculum offered at Beechwood College ensures a fun and engaging learning environment where all students are encouraged to participate and reach their full potential. We teach transferable skills that students will benefit from as they progress into future adulthood.
