Learning continues for residential learners under the title of a Waking Day curriculum extending learning from the college day into the evenings and weekends. The multidisciplinary team ensure that environments, activities and resources are structured to enable access to the practice, reinforcement and consolidation of skill development. Naturally this is focused around social interaction, community access, travel training and daily living skills. Learners are supported to translate their skills into daily living, recreation and work-related activities which they take into their future destinations, enhancing the quality of their adult lives. Residential learners are set personalised learning targets in their house setting which are monitored by the house staff and communicated to education staff.
Please see below an overview of our curriculum.
