Southern Regional College’s Model Campus was the venue for the Faculty of Health and Science Learn, Engage, Achieve & Progress (LEAP) Open Day – the new brand name for ASDAN.

The LEAP Open Day attracted students from local schools in the area as well as their parents, carers and social workers.  This programme of study allows young people to make the transition smoothly into college life, whilst being supported on this journey.

Students and parents came to see first-hand what LEAP can offer and received information on what opportunities they may have for the next four to five years with Southern Regional College (SRC). The courses are designed to develop their skills both socially and personally whilst also gaining employability skills and valuable opportunities to grow in both independence and confidence. 

SRC is the only organisation offering a full-time Entry Level qualification whilst the young person enjoys the benefits of college life within a safe and secure environment. At a recent Inclusive Skills competition, the manager of a local hotel said, “I would have no hesitation in offering these students a work placement opportunity.”  The College’s partnership with organisations like these ensures that there are plenty of opportunities for young people to reach their full potential.
