Skills for Independent Living
At our ‘Skills for Life and Work’ programme, we’re all about empowering students to live their best lives by developing the essential skills they need to be independent. Our fantastic team of educators work tirelessly to help our students sharpen a variety of crucial abilities.
Organisational Skills: Learning to organise one’s time, belongings, and responsibilities is a critical life skill. Through targeted activities such as planning schedules, maintaining personal spaces, and managing resources, students learn to handle their day-to-day activities more effectively and independently.
Money Handling: We believe that financial literacy is a crucial life skill for anyone looking to live independently. That’s why we offer exciting learning opportunities that cover all the essential aspects of money management, such as counting cash, grasping the concept of cost, making changes, budgeting, and mastering various financial transactions. By acquiring these skills, our students become confident and responsible in handling their finances. Trust us, with our guidance, you’ll be a money pro in no time!
Personal Safety: At our school, we take the safety of our students super seriously. That’s why we make sure to teach them all about personal safety and risk. Our curriculum includes fun and interactive lessons on how to identify potential dangers, follow safety protocols, and make informed decisions to keep themselves safe and healthy. Whether they’re online or out and about, we want our kids to feel confident and responsible. So, we make sure to instil a strong sense of caution and responsibility in all our students. Stay safe out there!
Engagement in Community-Based Activities
Did you know that the ‘Skills for Life and Work’ pathway we offer is so much more than just learning in a classroom? We believe in getting our students involved in community activities, so they can put their newly learned skills into action and see how they can be applied in real-life situations! Our students can volunteer, participate in local events, or even just mingle with different groups in the community. It’s such a valuable experience because it lets them apply their skills in the real world and feel like they’re making a positive difference in their neighbourhood. Plus, it’s a great way to make new friends and feel like you belong. We’re all about building a supportive community here!
Teamwork is Dreamwork
At Beaumont College, we’re all about setting our students up for success in the real world. That’s why our ‘Skills for Life and Work’ pathway is so important. We want to make sure our students are equipped with all the practical skills they need to thrive in the workplace. Our approach is comprehensive and carefully designed, with a focus on teaching things like punctuality, responsibility, teamwork, and problem-solving. Our students have teamed up with some amazing companies to work with such as the ones below.
We also give our students plenty of opportunities to experience work environments first hand, so they can get a real sense of what’s expected of them. But it’s not just about work skills! We also want our students to be confident, independent individuals who are engaged with their communities.
