Choose us for your Further Education

Sense College Loughborough is a small specialist college based in the heart of the East Midlands, offering daytime services to young people with a wide range of disabilities. Through our in-house enterprises and our partnership with Loughborough College, we provide individually tailored programmes to support our students to develop important skills for their life after college.

Develop your independence

We’ll help you to build your personal life skills and learn about looking after yourself. You’ll have opportunities to access the local community, become more confident, deal with new situations, and learn to make choices.
Our on-site team of therapists, including a speech and language therapist and a physiotherapist, can help to boost your wellbeing, build your confidence and improve your access to activities.

Prepare for work, volunteering or training

You’ll learn practical skills and gain work experience within our enterprises. These are our student-led businesses where you’ll be doing meaningful jobs in real settings. You’ll develop skills such as customer service, communication and health and safety.
You’ll also have the chance to go on work placement. This might be at Sense College or with a local external organisation. Placements with local companies offer excellent opportunities to experience a different team environment.

We also offer Supported Internships. This one-year programme is a great way for you to build your work experience and move into employment.  You might also work towards work skills qualifications.  Our focus is to help you prepare for your future.
