Independent Living Skills

A range of full and part time courses are available, tailored to students with learning difficulties, specialist education needs and/or behavioural requirements.

We have a close working relationship with the Swansea Council’s social services department which ensures that the courses match the educational needs of students.

Full time courses are delivered at the Tycoch Campus.

The varied study programme follows four areas:

  • Independent living skills
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Employability
  • Community inclusion. 

We strongly believe in integrating students into College life, fully supported by highly qualified and experienced staff. ILS students will also have opportunities to participate in national sports and skills competitions.
