Programmes for Young Adults

We run two programmes for young adults at Thurrock Adult Community College:

Education Programmes for Young People in Thurrock, aged 16-24 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) - 1 year programmes

For people with learning disabilities and difficulties, the transition from school to adulthood and greater independence is often a difficult one. At Thurrock Adult Community College we have a range of programmes for young people, aged 16-24, who have an EHCP, to provide support with managing the transition to adulthood and living independently. Thurrock Adult Community College work in partnership with Thurrock Council and Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions to deliver this programme that helps young adults with high needs learn, grow in confidence, increase their independence and develop skills for employment.

  • MTA Programme: Managing The Transition to Adulthood
  • TIL Programme: Towards Independent Living

The Prince's Trust Team Programme, for young people aged 16-25

If you're unemployed and between 16 and 25, you can meet new people, gain new skills and train on The Prince's Trust Team programme, based at Thurrock Adult Community College.

The 12-week personal development programme runs throughout the year and is delivered in partnership with Thurrock Council. It will help you meet new people, learn practical skills, gain experience and qualifications. The team programme is completely free and won't affect your Jobseekers Allowance.

  • make a positive difference to the community with a group project in Thurrock
  • develop your English and maths skills plus gain qualifications for the workplace including first aid, health and safety and food hygiene Level 2
  • spend some time developing your interview and CV skills to ensure your confidence is sky-high for taking the next step
