Hereward is a college for young people with disabilities and additional needs based in Coventry. Since 1971 we have been offering inclusive provision and specialist facilities for both day and residential learners with complex disabilities and learning difficulties.
Our vision is to prepare our learners for the next stage of their lives, providing them with outstanding employability skills and greater control over their future. We have a focus on creating independent individuals who can make more of their own decisions about work, education, health and living.
We have extensive partnerships with employers and an expanding supported internship study programme. The internships build upon all the skills that the young people have developed in college and extend them even further in real work situations.
Political activity is also important to the Hereward community and we encourage our learners to have a ‘voice’ in the issues that affect them. We also support the Natspec and NUS campaigns which addresses the inequalities faced by young people with learning difficulties or disabilities.
We are extremely proud of the achievements of all our learners and our hugely committed and dedicated staff which support them.
