Natasha continues to stay at Beaumont College on a residential placement. She was able to gain lots of different work skills over the span of her educational placement with us at Beaumont College which she is now putting into practice as part of her lifestyle plan. Natasha now goes to volunteer at Barnado’s twice a week where she undertakes many different tasks. She has written her own account of her voluntary work and what she does:
Jared was presented with his Level 1 Health and Safety in the Kitchen Certificate (from sensoryworld.org) by Ellie Townsend from Stanleys Community Centre Morecambe Café today. Ellie has supported Jared to achieve this important certificate. This means that he can properly start his Work Placement in the café where he will be completing a range of tasks, including serving service users and members of the public.
Tyler has been working at Morecambe Bay equestrian and has been doing really well, getting stuck in to mucking out stables and grooming the horses as part of his wider range of activities. He has been praised by the manager for being polite and working well with other pupils from the wider community.
The Art Enterprise group in College have recently started a business to promote the high quality artwork that is being produced. The students are working on designing a range of products such as mugs, bags, t-shirts and framed original prints to sell, as well as learning the basics of business.
