"College is the coolest place of places in all Ware and also Ware town. There are shops and you can go to the canteen and you can get your food up there. You can do drama, art, maths, cookery and there are computers, laptops and iPads and the staff are cool and don’t forget the students"
Matthew Dolman, Inclusive Learning
At HRC, we welcome learners with disabilities and/or difficulties and aim to provide the most effective support to help you achieve your goals. Each student’s programme is personalised and is based on identifying the areas of learning that are most relevant to your future.
THE CURRICULUM IS STRUCTURED INTO FOUR LEARNING AREAS:
1. Community inclusion
You will be supported to develop friendship skills, an understanding of equality and diversity and an understanding of social rules and expectations. You will also take part in community participation activities including social and leisure groups.
2. Employability skills and work experience
Work experience opportunities are designed to develop your employability, personal and social skills as well as help you pursue your interests. These could include working on conservation projects alongside the Lea Valley and Woodland Management team or serving at The Café.

Activities are developed to help promote your personal independence skills including social communication, budgeting, shopping, domestic skills and meal preparation.
4. Health and wellbeing
In this area, a focus is put on developing your core skills including healthy eating, fitness, support to manage medication, sexual health and managing emotions.
