What does this course involve?

This course is to equip students with Independent Living skills preparing them for adulthood. This is an accredited course and year one students will gain a certificate at either Entry Level 2 or Entry level 3. At the end of the second year students will gain a Diploma at either Entry Level 2 or Entry level 3. Students will also be working to improve their math and English Skills.

The curriculum will be delivered from our specialist facilities which include a Sensory room and flat where students gain valuable life skills including care and safety within the home, shopping and cooking.

Students will undertake a 1 day per week work experience placement which could be at our own Radnor Park Café.

All students will take part in our Community weeks which take place twice a year working alongside local charities and organisations, to help and support our local community.

Once a term we will monitor, review and if required set new individualised targets.

Transition from school
