Independent Living Skills


Yale and Northop

These full time Life Skills courses are suitable for students with a range of additional learning needs from Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD) to Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD).

Our range of Life Skills courses enable learners to develop vocational skills designed to improve opportunities for progression to employment and/or further study.

We offer a wide range of Life Skills courses including Cookery, Horticulture, Creative Skills, Workshop Skills, Animal Care, Horse Care and Riding and occupational taster courses.

Students are taught in small groups and all courses include lessons that help them build confidence and improve literacy, numeracy and skills for independence, employment and progression.
