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.

My experience at the college was enjoyable and productive, with thoroughly helpful people surrounding you, an excellent experience. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was, with the work shop time and experience I had, it was a great two years preparing me for the next stage.

Edward Smith, BTEC student

The teaching has been really good, I’ve loved all of my teachers, they’ve all been really nice and supportive.

Jodie Hook

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.
