How Can We Help
Here at West London Community College we can help in a number of ways, as well as literacy, numeracy and ICT we also strategically and skilfully put other skills together into our session plans, for example, social enterprise is fundamentally a session in which we sell home-made jams and chutneys on a market stall for an autism charity.
From this you will discover that the session incorporates accessing the community to shop for ingredients to then making the jam and chutney; using computers to source recipes and calculate profit margins; improving money skills when selling and budgeting the next product; working as a team to develop our products; social interaction when it comes to dealing with the general public- our customers.
Some of the sessions we offer include:
- Social drama
- Functional skills
- Vocational skills
- ‘Image in Action’
- Work placements
- Horse riding
- Life skills
Students also have the option of incorporating academic study into their timetable and can undertake qualifications such as GCSE’s and ASDAN.
Overall we empower students’ opportunities and help maximise their potential, ensuring they are able to lead an individualistic life, and have support of others’ who hold autism spectrum conditions.
