Service summary

Horizons College, formerly UET College, is a specialist facility for young adults aged 19-25 who have severe or profound multiple learning difficulties and/or complex needs.

Further information

In order to meet the wide range of needs, our learners require a specialist provision including: purposely designed accommodation, access to a range of expert and multi-agency support such as physiotherapists and occupational therapists, visually and hearing impaired specialists amongst others.


Horizons College provides four learning pathways that are intended to extend learning beyond that provided in the pre-16 phase and moving progressively towards community participation and application of skills. In real terms this will mean learning to use local services and making a contribution to the local community either through voluntary or paid work.

Client groups

Our courses are suitable for learners who wish to continue building on their learning and life skills beyond the age of 16.
