This course is designed for those learners who have yet to decide which vocational area interests them, allowing for tasters in the different work environments, whilst continuing to develop their independent living skills.
As part of the course, students are encouraged to try out the different work areas we have available at Petty Pool. These include Animal Care, Horticulture, Conservation and Retail and Catering. Tasters happen both on and off-site throughout the year, helping students to gain a real insight into each industry, whilst developing transferable work skills. Students also continue to develop their independence skills, both in the community, undertaking travel training, and domestically, in our own in-house flat.
