The foundation academy at St Helens College offers courses for people with a wide range of learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The foundation academy operates in a supportive environment which caters for both personal and academic needs.

Our experienced staff provide education and training that is tailored to the individual needs of students. This is supported by our own healthcare team, who provide support for students' personal needs, and our learning support officers, who assist students in their academic and technical and professional studies.
