National Star at Mamhilad

National Star’s education offering at Mamhilad, Torfaen, running for almost three years, provides a high level of care and support to increasing numbers of learners. It is designed for young people with complex and multiple learning and physical disabilities, offering a sensory-based curriculum.

The curriculum

Our curriculum is personalised to each learner, focusing on developing their independence, life skills, communication / social skills and preparing for life after college. Bespoke programmes can include creative arts (art, music, IT, photography and multimedia), horticulture, cooking, sensory stories and leisure and accredited qualifications.

Welsh language and culture form an integral part of the programme and include literacy, numeracy and IT.

Individualised support

Everyone has different abilities and needs, and we will work with you to create programmes that suit you and your goals. Our friendly and experienced team will support you every step of the way to develop your skills and interests. Your dedicated tutor will be on hand to ensure that you are able to get the very best out of life at college.

Our environment promotes interest-led learning, sensory approaches and specialised therapeutic support, so that your individual needs are fully met.

We appreciate that the key to enabling learners to successfully transition into adult life is our team at Mamhilad having relationships with parents, carers, guardians and statutory organisations, whilst always promoting a person-centred approach.
