We are a ‘working community’, with everyone, students and staff, contributing to the meaningful work necessary for maintaining our mutual interdependence, pride in achievement, and our sense of belonging to something bigger than ourselves while recognising our own, irreplaceable part in that picture.
Work is an inalienable right of existence, which imparts a sense of dignity, inclusion and purpose to all who are able to access it. Enabling everyone to participate in ‘meaningful work’ is a recognised strength of our provision.
The day programme comprises a wide variety of workshop placements which run from Monday to Friday. The primary purpose of our workshops is to provide ‘meaningful work’, that is work that has a real impact on life, the individual’s and the community’s.
Our workshops take different forms, designed to meet different needs and provide different ways for our students to progress. Progress is enabled through therapeutic inputs, fine and gross motor skills development, sustained application, confidence in achievement, social development, independence, work, and team-working skills.
We run four
different types of workshops: therapeutic, production, service and land
