What are the Preparing for Adulthood Programmes?

These programmes have been developed for learners with moderate, severe, complex, profound or multiple learning difficulties, working between P Levels 1-8 (below National Curriculum Level 1). These programmes provide a real-life context to promote the development of personal, social, independent, ICT and work-related skills.
