Welcome to Beaumont College
Whether you have a physical impairment or learning difficulty, our further education college can support you.
We enable residential and day students to take responsibility for their own lives. Our personalised learning programmes are designed to meet each student’s individual needs and encourage you to participate in exciting activities you’ve always wanted to try.
The college offers individual programmes within a curriculum that has strong emphasis on personal development through a clearly assessed pathway framework. As well as offering discrete courses provided internally within the college, the college also offers students the opportunity to work within the community with local partnerships and employers.
Each student accesses an individual programme that is based on a combination of course choices that are tailored to meet individual needs and aspirations, identified through their person-centred PATH (Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope) planning and support assessments.
Located approximately one mile from Lancaster City Centre, our main campus boasts seven separate living areas plus two houses within the grounds. We also offer day placements closer to home in Barrow, Blackpool and Carlisle.
The Beaumont College Curriculum
The Beaumont curriculum consists of five ‘Pathways’ to learning that are assigned based on holistic assessment and each individual PATH. Learning is session and community based and delivered in real settings, this ensures that students are able to transfer skills beyond their college course. Each young person and/or their advocate choose from subjects offered within these pathways through the Individual Option Planning process in order to build their programme.
