ESPA College provides education for young people between the ages of 16 and 25 with an
autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The college has been open since 1995 and currently provides programmes of study for over 100 students.
ESPA College is committed to providing a high quality autism-specific educational experience to
enable students to maximise their potential for future life, well-being and work.
We use a range of imaginative and varied teaching strategies to meet the unique needs of students with
an autism spectrum disorder. Each student has an Individual Living Plan (ILP) to meet their own learning goals.
Individual support and guidance is provided for each student including 1:1 support when required.
Our qualified and experienced staff team has extensive knowledge and skills in supporting
students with ASD. All students also have access to ESPA’s multi-disciplinary team if required.
The programme starts in September and follows a 38 week academic year. Day and residential
places are available and students may study for up to 3 years.
