ROC College Mission Statement
ROC College delivers personalised education and support to enable learners to progress and be challenged whilst promoting and building on independence.
ROC College is a specialist college that provides education within Cornwall, Devon and Somerset. We work with young people between the ages of 16 and 25 with Education, Health and Care Plans.
We are a College that believes teaching and learning takes place in your community, not just the classroom. We deliver a range of personalised and accredited programmes that support students to transition into adulthood by developing independent living skills, providing therapeutic input and building employability skills. We value the way in which all young people are unique, and our curriculum promotes respect for the views of each young person, as well as for people of all cultures.
The College has its own unique curriculums, all of which are individual to each student. They are built together with the student using a holistic approach to academic, social and personal targets, all with the goal of preparing for adulthood and a transition into the wider world of independence and work.
