Hereward College

Hereward College is a national college for people with disabilities and additional needs based in Coventry. We offer learners  a varied curriculum that focuses on skills for independent living and employment.

Our vision is to prepare our learners for the next stage of their lives, providing them with outstanding employability skills and greater control over their future. We have a focus on creating independent individuals who can make more of their own decisions about work education, health and living.

The study programme at Hereward College is outcome focussed, designed to meet individual needs and support progression. Learners can choose from a range of subject areas and qualifications that are supported by work experience, enterprise projects, taster sessions, and placements related to their study as well as developing the skills needed for independent living.

The College works with several national and regional employers to provide a breadth of work experience and supported internship placements to its students. It provides a crucial step in bridging the disability skills gap and enabling young people to gain access to employment, live independently, and become valuable and engaged members of the community.
