Hereward College is a national college for people with disabilities and additional needs based in Coventry.

It offers learners a varied curriculum that focuses on skills for independent living and employment.

Hereward College has both day and residential provision, which caters for a whole range of needs ranging from students with autism, physical difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties and complex disabilities.

With a person centred and destination led approach, learners follow a study programme designed to meet their needs. There is a real focus on employability, and every learner has access to work experience opportunities linked to their learning. Learners also have the opportunity to take part in Hereward’s supported internship study programme with one of the college’s partner employers which provides valuable experience within a supported environment.

A range of additional support is available to students to ensure their journey through college runs as smoothly as possible. Learners can access speech and language therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social and emotional support, nursing support, and independent learning support.

The college also offers respite care breaks for 16 to 25 year olds which provide young people with a taste of residential life, a chance to socialise with peers and take part in group and college activities.
