Home educated students can now access college courses free of charge to support their home education. City and Islington College is now leading the way locally, creating programmes of study specifically for this group of young people. We will support these students on their learning journey from application, enrolment and through to the successful completion of their course.
To access the Home Education Hub programmes a young person must be the equivalent age of students going into Year 10 or Year 11.
This provision at City and Islington College may not always be suitable for young people with significant behavioural issues and those who are disengaged from education. Those who have been permanently excluded from school, or were at risk of this happening prior to de-registration from school, may be referred to alternative provision. Each application is fully explored to ensure that every individual is on a programme which offers the best and most appropriate support to meet their needs.
The intention of this programme is to create a pathway for home educated young people to join the college and prepare for their next steps to further or higher education
Students on this programme will be in college for approximately 14 hours per week (potentially Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday dependent on timetables and following the usual term times)
They will be taught by high-quality subject experts and receive a blend of subject-specific lessons, study skills/employability support and pastoral/tutorial support creating a rich programme designed to build confidence as well as educational attainment
Students will be given homework and develop their independent research and study skills
The provision will be located at our Angel centres, with a base room and some subject delivery in the Centre of Applied Sciences and other subjects delivered in the Sixth Form
Students will benefit from accessing the great resources available including the use of the libraries, science laboratories and refectories and the Home Education Hub and its students will be a key part of college life
