Personalised Learning

Personalised Learning is designed to meet the individual needs of young people. The student can choose the direction that they want to go in and develop the skills they need. This can include learning life skills, managing more independence and moving towards employment.

Personalised Learning is open to young people aged 16-25 years old who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP.)

Personalised Learning pathways at Blueberry can be towards Employment or Independence, or a mixture of both.

All Pathways are initially for one year and run for 3 or 4 days per week, depending upon the needs of the individual student.

Students can attend for 1, 2 or 3 years, as long as they are still making educational progress.

Blueberry delivers these programmes on behalf of York Learning, as part of City of York Council's local offer to support young people in preparing for adulthood. Each student has an individual programme which is tailored to their personal independence or employment goals.

Blueberry also delivers PLPs in Selby and Scarborough on behalf of North Yorkshire Adult Learning as well as job coaching work experiences in Northallerton.

Learning and training can take place in the following ways:

  • through taught sessions (group or one to one) in our Learning Hubs
  • in our own in-house supported employment activities
  • through organised community activity or volunteering opportunities
  • on a work placement or Supported Internship, supported by a Blueberry Job Coach
