Access is a two year, part time course for students with more complex additional support needs.

It is for students working at SCQF level 1 and sometimes level 2. Students will be in college for at least two half days per week and this can often be used as a further post-school transition into a full time course, where it is in the best interests of the student.

Students will be working within creative areas such as music, art and drama as well as enhancing their own chosen forms of communication. Other subjects can be dependent on the campus, such as enterprise activities and crafts as well as suitable sporting activities.
