Your innovative practice will develop students’ learning programmes, supporting young people with complex learning difficulties and disabilities (CLDD) and / or profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD). Multi-disciplinary work will be critical in your role so that you can ensure students maximise their learning, boosting their independence and wellbeing to prepare them for life after college.
