Our aim is to provide lifelong learning opportunities to the Learning Disability community of Hartlepool and the surrounding areas with a priority to fulfil and deliver accredited education programmes to eligible students with Education & Health Care Plan (EHC) and funding from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA).
As of January 2018, our student/learner cohort is comprised of:
- 27 ESFA funded learners;
- 34 lifelong learners;
- 7 learners funded by Continuing Health Care.
These learners age groups fall into the following categories:
- 47 learners aged 19 – 24;
- 15 learners aged 25 – 30;
- 5 learners aged 31 – 40;
- 2 learners aged 40+
Of our 69 current learners, 46 (67%) have Education, Health and Care Plans (EHC). The majority of our students reside in Hartlepool though we do have learners coming from Durham, Darlington and Stockton.
