Vocational & Foundation Learning

Through these courses, you can acquire and improve skills that will open doors to further study, employment or supported employment.

Class sizes are generally smaller and a variety of specialist support is available.  You can choose vocational options to try out, such as catering, drama, sport, automotive, art, animal care, health and care, business and retail, IT and hair and beauty.  

HSDC is excited to announce that we have been awarded Hampshire SEND Employability Hub status. We are looking to take on a cohort of Year 11 students through a specialist, individualised programme where the outcome is paid employment. For more information visit our SEND Employability Hub page.

What are you interested in?

I would say it’s a college that really balances academia with fun, there is lots of extra-curricular stuff that you can get involved in. It has a really good work/life balance.

Laura Hagedorn, A Level student

There are great teachers here. This college has felt more like a university than a school, and it’s definitely lived up to that more grown-up feel.

Vicky Lipscombe, A Level student

My experience at the College was great, it’s very different to school, and I think it’s a good step to going to university. The support was amazing, I loved all of my teachers, they helped me through everything. The College is friendly and you will succeed.
