Did You Know...

You can book a taster session to cater for a wide variety of interests and skills for individuals or small groups.  Whether you are a parent or a school, looking for skills training, or enrichment, you can call us and book a morning or afternoon session for a specialist class or taster in cookery, crafts, woodwork, digital media and photography and much else besides.  Why not call Judith on 01752 600421, Mondays to Thursdays.

It is time to finish everything off: the year and Summer Term will end on the 17th of July and all of the portfolio work will be submitted before the end of June.  Well done to our learners for the hard work they have put in and for the certification that they will have earned by it.  A good year to you all.

Next year...

We are looking to develop the ARC wellbeing project with residential accommodation for young people with ASC who are transitioning to independence and adulthood as they leave compulsory education or care.  We hope to help in providing suitable accommodation, with support, in order to give the young person experience living in and maintaining their first rented home.

Welcome to our Autism group.

There will be a tutorial to finish at  a time to suit individual learners

Meeting the needs of Learners with Autistic Spectrum Conditions in the Mainstream Classroom.  There are 4 Learning outcomes, one tackled each week, to produce a portfolio of work to demonstrate knowledge and understanding about the effects of autism and how to best support young learners who are on the spectrum.

Last Word ...

"The direction in which education starts a man [or woman] will determine his [or her] future life."  Plato, The Republic.

Therefore a good start, appropriate to the needs and interests of a learner will ensure a good outcome: get a good start!
