We have 2 programmes for Young Adults

Managing The Transition to Adulthood (MTA)
Education Programmes for Young People in Thurrock, aged 16-24 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)

For people with learning disabilities and difficulties, the transition from school to adulthood and greater independence is often a difficult one. The Managing the Transition to Adulthood programmes at Thurrock Adult Community College are aimed at young people, aged 16-24, who have an Education, Health and Care Plan and need some extra support with their next steps into further study, employment, volunteering and/or living independently.

Learn, grow in confidence, increase your independence and develop skills for further study and employment on full-time study programmes that are tailored to each young person's needs and personal goals.

This is a Preparing for Adulthood programme for High Needs learners aged 16-24 on an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Part of the Local Offer, Thurrock Adult Community College works in partnership with Thurrock Council, Grangewaters and Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions to deliver these programmes.

Full details available to download from the flyer in the Useful links section. To register your interest in the next programmes, starting in September 2021, please call the college on 01375 372476, email info@tacc.ac.uk or leave us a message in the web chat box.
