Chaffron Way Open Event - 10th November
Come along to our Chaffron Way campus to see what life at Milton Keynes College is really like.
We challenge our students to be themselves — creative, imaginative and fantastic individuals. Our goal is for each person to leave the College with the tools to progress and to get the best out of their future lives.
The inclusive learning programmes offer choices for students with learning difficulties and disabilities to develop independent living and work skills in a friendly, supportive and fun learning environment.
You can expect to experience learning in the classroom, out in the community and in our new horticultural centre. There are also lots of oppourtunities for work experience in real-life situations with many being offered employment at the end of their study programme.Our dedicated team of staff are trained to deliver the best possible learning environment for each individual student. We also have a permanent Inclusive Living Flat, in which you can learn skills you will need in daily life to be able to be independent, such as changing and making the bed, washing up and cooking nutritious meals.
These courses have been designed to support progression at your own pace. The personalised approach of your course will give you the skills to look forward with confidence and fulfil your potential ready for further study or employment.
Academic skills are obviously very important, however we also encourage our students to focus on personal and independent skills. The Inclusive Living Flat is laid out as a real flat within a classroom setting, with a fully functional kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. You will learn how to complete everyday tasks such as preparing food, putting together nutritional meals, cooking, washing up and cleaning kitchen equipment. Cleaning bathrooms may not be the most exciting thing, but it is an essential task to keep hygiene to a high standard. You will also learn to make the bed, including using taking all sheets and pillow cases off and sticking them in the washing machine. You will learn about different settings to use, including temperature and seperating colours. You will have the opportunity to find out what living on your own would be like, however you will now have no excuse not to help out with the washing up at home!
You might be suited to another vocational Entry Level 3 course we offer, such as Art & Design, Construction or Motor Vehicle. Get in touch with us today to discuss your individual options, call us on 01908 684141 or email us.

Doing new things on your own can be difficult, and a bit scary when you’re not confident that what you’re doing is correct.
