Overview:Queen Alexandra College (QAC) is a national residential College and charity based in Birmingham that supports a diverse range of student abilities and needs. We offer courses for young people aged 16-25yrs as well as employment focused and supported living programmes.
We welcome students who come to our College from all over the country – as well as many who are local to us. QAC has been at its current location since 1903 and can trace its history back to 1847, when it was decided that a school for the blind should be established.
Today, in addition to supporting people who have a visual impairment, we offer support and guidance for students with autistic spectrum conditions, those with moderate to severe learning difficulties, students with physical and other disabilities.
Ultimately, we have a great mix of students which adds to the wonderful atmosphere here in College.
We offer an innovative, holistic approach to learning and support. Our curriculum is designed to maximise adult life opportunities, develop independence and work skills. Programmes are tailored to suit individual needs, interests and ambitions.
Class sizes are small and support levels high. The College has a team of specialists on site including Speech and Language Therapists, a VI Training Officer, Educational and Clinical Psychologists, Counsellors, Mentors, a Braille Tutor, OT and Sensory Support, a Dyslexia Tutor, Healthcare Professionals including a Physiotherapist, Rehabilitation and Travel Trainers and a Personal and Sexual Health Education (PSHE) Lead.
Staff will help you to become more independent and confident during your time with us and will also prepare you for adulthood.
