Foundation Skills gives young people the opportunity to break down barriers they may have to learn, allowing them to grow and develop; personally, socially and academically, in order to successfully achieve their full potential.
The core curriculum will help learners to develop their confidence, life and employability skills in a creative and welcoming atmosphere. They will choose a vocational route that interests them and undertake weekly practical workshops in that area.
Enrichment activities will develop skills in communication, teamwork and leadership, helping to build confidence and overcome any anxieties or social barriers. During these activities learners will work towards a Prince’s Trust Achieve certificate and a Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award.
Literacy and numeracy development will be a core focus for all learners and once ready, learners will have the opportunity to undertake Essential Skills Wales qualifications in Communication and Application of Number.
This course offers lots of practical tasks which will also help develop your Maths, English and Digital Literacy skills. If you want to see your confidence grow and be all that you can be and more, then Foundation Skills is the course for you.
