Derwen College welcomes the first students to its new satellite provision in Telford in September 2020, in a partnership with Telford & Wrekin Council.
The launch of the Telford site comes in response to a need for more options for young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in the local authority. Students working at the site will receive expert vocational training and independence skills learning.
Derwen College has converted the former business premises at Stafford Park into a new satellite site. From here, a team of expert staff will offer day students with SEND the specialist learning and work placement provision that they would expect from a college with an outstanding reputation.
