The College works with young people aged 16 to 24* who have a range of special educational needs and/ or disabilities including those with autism, mild, moderate and more sever learning disabilities, sensory impairments and physical disabilities.

A note to parents and guardians

Whichever programme your son or daughter joins at Buzz Learning we encourage you to be involved in their education with us, as we believe working together is key to your child’s success. We will ask you how much information you want from us, how frequently you want it, and how you prefer to receive it (email, phone call, letter etc). You will also be invited in to Buzz Learning to meet with staff at least once each term, to discuss your child’s progress.

Please note, if your child joins our Supported Internship programme, we will encourage them to make an application to Access to Work for support with, e.g., travel, a job coach and equipment if appropriate.

*Learners who are, or will be, 19 or over on 31st August in the year they wish to start must have an Education Health and Care Plan EHCP) and their place in the College must be agreed by their Local Authority.  

Buzz’s school operates next door to the College and delivers education and training to learners aged from 13 to 16 who have special educational needs and/ or disabilities. The School has been in operation since September 2018 and a copy of the inspection report can be downloaded here.
