Personal Development

Home Life

Our friendly, qualified and experienced staff support our residential students to develop key life skills in line with their individual learning plans.

Each young person has a Residential Key Worker, whose role it is to link with the education team and other professionals to ensure that the student's residential care and support remains consistent at all times.

Daily routines and consistent staffing teams help to keep our students' anxiety at a minimum and ensure that everyone feels safe in their surroundings.  Our structured approach provides students with the confidence to learn, grow and achieve success.

Where possible, students are encouraged to help organise and participate in evening and weekend activities, including visits to the cinema, leisure centre and restaurants, supporting their individual plans and personal growth.  It is important to remember that Beechwood College is a further education establishment and attendance at timetabled sessions must be the primary focus for all students.

Therapies (subject to funding)

At Beechwood College we are able to provide access to a wide range of therapies and medical support that seek to promote skill development and remove barriers to learning.

Our Multi-Disciplinary Team works closely with students who have agreed therapeutic funding.  Close working partnerships between staff, parents and/or carers play a vital role in ensuring that College practices can be embedded at home.

Our specialists include:

  • Speech and Language Therapy (SALT)
  • Occupational Therapy (OT)
  • Clinical Psychology
  • Music Therapy
  • Psychiatry
  • Dietetics
  • Physiotherapy
