We have 2 programmes for Young People with an EHCP
Managing The Transition to Adulthood (MTA)
Education Programmes for Young People in Thurrock, aged 16-24 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)
For people with learning disabilities and difficulties, the transition from school to adulthood and greater independence is often a difficult one. The Managing the Transition to Adulthood programmes at Thurrock Adult Community College are aimed at young people, aged 16-24, who have an Education, Health and Care Plan and need some extra support with their next steps into further study, employment, volunteering and/or living independently.
Learn, grow in confidence, increase your independence and develop skills for further study and employment on full-time study programmes that are tailored to each young person's needs and personal goals. Part of the Local Offer, Thurrock Adult Community College works in partnership with Thurrock Council, Grangewaters and Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions to deliver these programmes.

Education Programme for Young People in Thurrock, aged 18-24 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)
After finishing sixth form, College or completing a Supported Internship, young people with additional needs often need a bit of extra time and space to work out and prepare for what they want to do next. The Be Inspired programme, run by Thurrock Council as part of the Local Offer, is aimed at young people, aged 18-24 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan and have already completed a Level 2 or a Level 3 qualification. This programme provides extra support to plan and manage the next steps into higher education or employment and to develop the higher-level skills needed to get there, on a full-time, one year study programme that is tailored to meet each young person's needs and aspirations.
