Find my course

Unsure what course to study?

You just need to answer three simple questions about your study preferences, interests and predicted grades and we can suggest courses that might suit you.

  • 1 Study type
  • 2 Your Interests
  • 3 Your Grades
Question 1

How would you prefer to study?

Question 2

What are your interests?

Question 3

What grades have you achieved or are predicted?

These results are a suggestion of courses you may want to explore but are by no means a definitive list and individual entry requirements do apply.

Ambitions Adult Day Opportunities

Ambitions Day Opportunities is aimed at young people with learning disabilities aged 16 and over. We have our own base in the grounds of Stamford College. Ambitions can offer day provision on a young person’s day off from college and or during half terms and summer holiday periods. In addition to this we offer a positive progression for when your young people complete their education.

OPEN TIMES

Ambi­tions is cur­rent­ly open three days a week, Mon­day, Tues­day and Thurs­day all year round apart from bank hol­i­days and a short Christ­mas break. We aim to start Wednes­day pro­vi­sion in the near future.

ACTIV­I­TIES and FACILITIES

Ambi­tions is deliv­ered from a des­ig­nat­ed self-con­tained area in the grounds of Stam­ford Col­lege. We have a ful­ly acces­si­ble kitchen, large day room and an enterprise/​art and craft room, in addi­tion to this we have our own self-con­tained gar­den. Ambi­tions has use of a mini bus for local trips and days out fur­ther afield.

Wher­ev­er pos­si­ble, we sup­port peo­ple to par­tic­i­pate in ordi­nary com­mu­ni­ty activ­i­ties in ordi­nary places whilst meet­ing the needs of the indi­vid­ual to do so.

Ambi­tions is a client led activ­i­ty-based pro­vi­sion, pro­mot­ing choice and inde­pen­dence. Our belief is that all peo­ple have con­tri­bu­tions to make in soci­ety and access­ing ser­vices in their local com­mu­ni­ties can raise their pro­file for bet­ter com­mu­ni­ty inclusion.

COST

Ambi­tions costs start from £65 per day which includes all refresh­ments but not lunch. This is payable by direct pay­ments or self-fund­ed. Clients can be assessed indi­vid­u­al­ly for more ded­i­cat­ed sup­port where required. If you should require any advice on access­ing direct pay­ments. Then please con­tact me.
