Ambitious College is an independent specialist college for children on the autistic spectrum, aged 16 to 25. They offer a highly personalised curriculum and positively support their learners to acquire new skills and take part in everyday life. They are located within two mainstream further education college campuses: the College of Haringey, Enfield, and North East London (CONEL), and West Thames College, West London. At each campus, their team of dedicated and passionate professionals includes teachers, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, employment specialists, behaviour analysts, and specialist support staff. They do not take a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Instead, they work together to come up with learning and support approaches tailored to the individual.
Through a range of partnerships with local businesses, community groups, and their mainstream college partners, they also offer opportunities to learn in the community. This combined approach – personalised education, positive support, and real work experience – delivers results. It allows their young people to achieve their goals, fulfil their potential, and go on to lead active lives in their community.
