Do you want to develop your communication skills and build your confidence through practical activities?
This programme will help adults with learning difficulties / disabilities prepare for work by developing a range of social and practical skills.
There are no minimum entry requirements for this course. You should want to become more confident in working with other people and to improve your practical skills.
You will work with others to plan, cook and serve a meal. After a shared lunch, you will work on a variety of activities in the afternoon. You might work on creative projects such as woodwork, have a go at floristry, practise your IT skills or focus on your health and wellbeing.
You will work towards your own personal targets. You will review these with staff at the end of each lesson and decide together when you are ready to set a new target.
You will be asked for a £3 per day contribution towards the cost of your lunch, payable as £105 at the start of the year.
You may need to provide protective clothing or equipment for some of your practical activities.
If you want to keep something that you make, there may be a charge for this.
You might use your new skills in a job or get involved in activities in your community. Perhaps you will decide to continue your education to build on the skills you have developed.
