Emma started with our Jelli Campus in September 2019 and despite a number of significant challenges has made incredible progress during her time with us. Emma has Down’s Syndrome which is a genetic condition that leads to developmental delays in all areas meaning that Emma requires reasonable adjustments in relation to her learning journey. When Emma joined the campus, she was shy and had real difficulty communicating directly with her peers and the faculty. She would use software packages to convey her feelings and to help others understand her, she often found this frustrating.
Emma has just completed year 3 and achieved a L1 Certificate in Vocational Studies. In year 1 she completed the L1 Certificate in Performing Arts and in year 2 she completed the L1 Diploma in Performing Arts. Throughout her time on programme, she has received support and tuition with maths, English and various enrichment, and personal development sessions.
