RNIB College Loughborough
Radmoor Road, Loughborough, LE11 3BS, Leicestershire
We are a friendly residential college supporting young people and adults with vision impairment and additional disabilities to achieve their goals. Our programmes are designed to develop independence skills for involvement in community life.
Education and skills
Choose us for your Further Education and you’ll learn practical skills and gain work experience within our enterprises - our Café, eBay business, Conference Centre, Arts Centre, Shop and Office. You could also choose a course at our partner mainstream college located next door.
If you are a young adult wanting to gain the skills and confidence to progress into independent or supported living, you may want to apply for our Bridge programme. It's a one-year residential programme which will help you to build your independence. You'll be encouraged and supported to do things you've previously had help for, making you ready to move into your own home.
Also on offer is Flexible Futures, our daytime activities programme. You could spend time in each of our different enterprises, providing a vital role in these real businesses and being part of college life. You could also go out and enjoy the local community.
Our Stan Bell Centre offers modern, purpose built, safe accommodation. Learners are encouraged to be as independent as possible; however we recognise that some people will always need a little more support. Our residence is staffed 24 hours a day.
