About the Organisation

Fairfield Farm College is a Specialist College for students with learning disabilities; it is a registered Charity, with residential, day and weekend courses.
You can join the Vocational and Independence Training course when you are between 16 and 19 years old, but can join when older providing you have
completed your course before your 25th Birthday.
We are situated in the village of Dilton Marsh in Wiltshire. Our 26-acre farm site includes well-resourced teaching and vocational learning areas, a student
common room, conference room, café and a farm shop.
We offer residential programmes delivered in our four houses in the village. When you start at the College, you will take part in an induction course where
you can try all of our subjects to help us develop a programme with you that meets your longer term aspirations.

This includes:
• Independence Training and Personal, Social and Health Education, (PSHE)
• Vocational learning (engineering, farming, horse studies, horticulture, house maintenance, art and design)
• Communication, Literacy, Numeracy and IT skills (embedded in all areas)
• Work-based learning (café, horticulture retail, catering, customer care and office skills)
• Regular external work experience, initially with an appropriate level of support
• Independent Advice and Guidance (IAG) from a qualified careers specialist
• Some students attend a part-time course at another college to obtain Literacy, Numeracy or vocational qualifications

Fairfield Farm College is committed to promoting equality, eliminating discrimination and encouraging diversity amongst staff and students.
For further information please ask for a copy of the college’s Equality and Diversity policy and related documents.
We are graded Good by OFSTED. Inspection reports are available on the OFSTED website.

Separate from the college we now offer an Independent Training course for up to 52 weeks per year. Learning to live in a group setting, progressing into a flat with support and on into the community. Learning to find work, voluntary and meaningful daytime activities.
