Alexandra College: No Limits Programme

Courses for Students with Learning Disabilities or Difficulties

Westminster Kingsway College offers provision for young people aged 16 to 25 with severe and complex needs that is delivered all year round in a newly refurbished centre in Camden. The new Alexandra College has been re-modelled to ensure that the learning and living space is fully accessible.

Curriculum

The No Limits Programme curriculum will focus on health, employment, independent living and community inclusion and the learning is underpinned by specialist support. Programmes will be flexible and individualised, focussing on what the students need to learn to support their transition from school to adulthood and prepare them for what they want to do next. As part of their Individual Learning Plan, students may access courses and vocational training opportunities at other Westminster Kingsway College Centres including catering, creative arts, health and beauty. Most importantly each learner will have a stimulating, meaningful and exciting time in college. 

Entry requirements

Alexandra College is open to learners who are aged 16 to 25 years old (cannot be over 24 years old at the start of their final year at college), have a significant learning disability and may also have a physical disability.

Applications are invited from those who are unable to have their needs met by a school sixth form or general further education college programme for Learners with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities (LLDD) and have an Education, Health and Care Plan naming the provision (previously had a statement of educational needs or a learning disability assessment (LDA)).

This includes learners who:

  • Have a severe learning disability or profound and multiple learning disabilities and may also have a physical disability
  • May have an autism diagnosis 
  • Want to continue with their education
  • Require a programme built around their individual needs

How to apply and further information

Places at Alexandra College must be agreed by your home borough (the borough in which you live) as the local authority funds places. Families cannot fund placements directly. Each young person for whom the local authority (in the borough where you live) agrees to consider a placement will be invited for an individual assessment to help decide if this is the right provision. To arrange this assessment, please contact the special educational needs (SEN) service in your borough.
