What are Extended Opportunities?

Extended Opportunities are extra curricular acitivties that enhance our learner experience. There are opportunities to engage in different activities to learn new skills, improve on existing skills and discover new intersets. Our Extended Opportunities programme allows our learners meet new people with similar hobbies and interests. Our provision is split into four strands to allow personal development and also allow for professional develop to support their dreams goals and aspirations. We would like all of our learners to explore and investigate new life experiences and allow the challenge to step ouf of a comfort zone in a safe and supportive environment.

Our provision extends to wider participation in the local community and also extensively with educational and recreational trips and visits.

We empower our learners to shape their own JLC experience by attending, running and launching their own societies to leave a JLC legacy behind.

Our latest excursions have included Dance  Showcase at Cast, in September 2021 Alton Towers in October 2021.
