At Technology Campus the learners are preparing for work and do either an internal or external placement depending on the course they are doing. The internal placements involve working in retail, gardening or café/ kitchen and all placements have an admin role included. External placements include, for example, working in different retail environments, garden centre, riding stables and hairdressers.
Enterprise Festival in Trinity Leeds
This was a whole college event and all departments completed different activities. Our department had a stall selling different craft items and plants the learners had made. It was very successful and the stall made more money than events in previous years. All the learners volunteered to work on a day they weren’t normally in college, which demonstrated their work ethic and commitment.
At Beeston Campus, the programme is to help young people build on their current skills in order to be able to make some choices of their own and become more independent.
Learners have taken part in a variety of activities this year:
Fundraising for the garden project at Beeston to make a nice area where the learners can sit and enjoy the environment, as well as grow different plants, fruit and vegetables.
Life Skills 2A preparing plants to sell and plant in the garden at Beeston.
The group went to Hollywood Bowl at Kirkstall and then had lunch at McDonalds. They won the garden competition that learners had entered to plan the gardens at Beeston Campus. The game of bowling for the group was the prize.
Participating in different sports via the sports project, examples- boccia, boxing and wheelchair rugby
