Level 1 Learning Programmes (L1LP)


Level 1 Learning Programmes (L1LP) will target the very specific group of students with general learning disabilities in the range of lower functioning moderate to severe and profound categories. The programme will be capable of personalisation to suit the individual needs of the target group of students.

The students in question may experience difficulty understanding the world around them and their place in it. They may also have issues with expressive and receptive communication skills.

The Level 1 Learning Programmes are made up of six Priority Learning Units (PLUs) which explicitly identify and develop the key areas of learning needed to prepare the students for their future lives.

· Communication, Language and Literacy

· Personal Care and Wellbeing

· Being part of a Community

· Numeracy

· The Arts

· Physical Education
