An awareness of key global and national issues helps individuals to have a perspective on their place in the world.
Our students will take part in a range of activities, which broaden their knowledge of environmental issues, current affairs, geographical and historical concepts and the many and diverse challenges facing them as they progress to an adult role.
Many of the tasks the students undertake will help build competencies in citizenship, relating to others, managing situations and working as part of a team – all key to being fulfilled and employable adults.
We recognise that students with communication, socialisation and imagination difficulties all have different skills and attributes.
Students learn a range of relevant vocational skills in a vibrant and stimulating environment. Supported by their teachers, the ongoing assessment can lead to nationally recognised qualifications.
Current research shows that only 15% of young people with an autism spectrum diagnosis are in sustained, full-time employment and we are passionate about changing that statistic.
