RACC has a strong background in working with people who have learning difficulties and disabilities. We believe that everyone has the ability to gain new skills for life, learning, work and leisure and that everyone should be treated with dignity, courtesy and respect. Everyone is treated as an adult and makes their own choices. We will work with you to put together a programme that is right for you and meets your needs and interests. We have full-time courses to help you prepare for work and part-time courses that teach skills for learning and living. Our leisure courses help you to meet other people and have fun while learning a new hobby.
Learners can use their Self-Directed Support payments to pay for leisure programmes and support.
To join RACC please arrange a meeting to choose a course and organise support. Find out about RACC’s full range of courses for Learners with Learning Difficulties or Disabilities by visiting the college website or contacting the LLDD coordinator on 020 8891 5907 Ext: 5012 or email LLDD@racc.ac.uk

We have a number of supported schemes including Working Model, an employment opportunity for adults with learning difficulties. The partners in the scheme train in basic workplace skills through attending weekly work sessions where craft kits and other products are made. These are then sold in the Parkshot Gallery and other outlets under the Working Model brand. The group operates a profit share scheme on the sale of its work.
