Independent Specialist Provision In Birmingham 

Some students will not be able to access a course, or the environment at a local college, even with support from specialist staff. 

There a colleges within Birmingham that are more specialist and will able to meet the students needs in smaller classes or smaller environments, but still offer a challenging curriculum so progress can be made.  

We would encourage you to look at Heart of Birmingham Vocational Centre which is an independent specialist college for learners aged between 16 and 25 with special educational needs. 

At Heart of Birmingham Vocational College (HBVC) you will gain experience and new skills to help you become more independent and to prepare you for employment. You will learn through realistic, practical, hands-on activities that will increase your confidence and equip you for the future you want.  Please call 0121 8090666 for further information. 

We would also encourage you to look at The Hive College in Erdington: 

In September 2013 Wilson Stuart School and University College Birmingham formed a partnership and created a vocational study programme called LIVE @ The Hive.  The programme is designed to support students aged 19-25 with special educational needs and disabilities into employment and promote their independence and confidence. Please call 0121 306 4800 for further details. 


Preparing our students for adulthood is at the heart of our school vision. Please see our latest destinations information below.
