This two-year vocational course offers students an alternative path to the world of work by developing skills that are needed for employment.
At Dover Court International School, the level of support provided depends on each individual student’s needs. They have structured the support into three learning pathways. These learning pathways are not fixed and students can move between them depending on how much support they need.
Pathway 1 – The mainstream pathway. Students may also access short-term support in order to meet the learning outcomes through our learning support and therapy teams, including English as an Additional Language.
Pathway 2 – This pathway also follows the mainstream curriculum but provides a greater level of support due to a higher level of need. Class sizes are smaller, with 8-10 students, and a teacher and teaching assistant.
Pathway 3 – Pathway 3 provides the highest level of support with an individualized curriculum and support program for students with significant learning and/or social needs. The class size is 8 students and the ratio of adults to students is increased.
