Important Entry Requirement & Application Update

College is still accepting online applications for courses starting in September 2020.


Interviews are cancelled to help to limit social contact during this time.

Instead, you will be invited to a college welcome event to meet the tutors before the start of the course. If you do not meet the entry criteria you will have the opportunity to discuss an alternative programme during this event.

No formal entry requirements.

At Dolgellau, Glynllifon and Llangefni an offer of a place on the course is subject to successful attendance on a personalised transition event.

An offer of a place at Canolfan Marl is subject to a referral from Conwy Social Services and a tutor assessment of individual need through a school visit, or an independent specialist college visit and a meeting with Parents / Carers.

Working at Milestone 1-3


The programme is delivered through a variety of sensory experiences to promote individual choice, social interaction, communication and self-awareness.


Learners will be following a non-accredited programme. After setting and agreeing individual targets, learners may be assessed through a variety of methods which meet their individual learner needs.


Depending on local opportunities, learners may progress to day centres and possible sheltered employment opportunities.
