Life Skills is a full-time post-16 curriculum, it allows for extensive tailoring with a planned focus on best equipping each individual for the opportunities, experiences and responsibilities of their adult life.
The Study Programmes allow for tailoring each individual’s curriculum around their aspirations and learning needs, focusing on the areas of continued education, vocation, personal health, leisure, relationships, recreation and active community inclusion.
Learning takes place at the centre, in the community and in local colleges, as appropriate to each individual’s learning objective.
At Life Skills, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum that focuses on teaching skills required for everyday life. We support, encourage and motivate students to achieve their full potential and to become as independent as possible.
The curriculum is differentiated to meet students individuals needs and personalise their timetable to achieve this. So each student will work on a personalised pathway that focuses on their skills and interests and develops with them and supports them into their transition into adulthood, further education, supported living, voluntary and paid employment.
Students receive a teaching programme that incorporates small steps cumulative learning with opportunities to consolidate new skills and generalise and transfer them to other settings and environments. New skills are presented in a practical, visual and functional way and lessons are meaningful, have a clear purpose which uses interests to motivate and extend learning.
