Foundation Education

The Foundation Skills Programme (FSP) is aimed at building your study and personal skills for progression on to higher level courses or work.

You will get the chance to try out a range of vocational subjects, such as catering, animal care, art and media. On successful completion, you will be equipped with a range of new skills which will help you towards living independently and significantly increase both your study and employment options.
