Course Description

The aim of the programme is to make each of our students as independent as possible and ready to make important life choices. Each participant follows their own individualised plan and is fully supported by staff to achieve their full potential. This is delivered through education, life skills training and work experience.
Over the past year, some new initiatives have been introduced, eg, Skills for Life participants are now involved in a Personal Training Programme which involves them working with the Health and Leisure students at the Institute on a one-to-one basis. They have a choice of activities including the gym and the pool.
