Working together to provide learning opportunities for adults with autism we’ve partnered with Falcons Learning Centre.
The partnership sees those that are supported and cared for by Goldcrest House access the learning opportunities available at Falcons, a specialist school for people who find the formal educational system a barrier to their learning and development.
Providing supervised training and guidance after Falcons under 16 learners have gone home, Chris and Mark have been attending twice weekly tutored sessions in motor vehicle studies. Using a vocational based curriculum both have been working their way through two structured courses; Workshop Practice and Procedure and Stripping and Assembling and Four Stroke Engine, resulting in successful completion and commendations.
Steve Wash, Principal Falcons Learning ltd says: “I am delighted to be able to offer our guided learning to more members of the community, especially to our neighbours Goldcrest House. I am incredibly proud of Chris and Mark’s achievements and their enthusiasm. Both subjects have been incredibly hands on, especially the stripping and rebuilding of a very old Triumph Herald engine, which they completed with amazing competency.”
Trish Patrickson, Registered Manager at Goldcrest House says: “Such a dream come true for both Chris and Mark, it’s been a pleasure to see their enthusiasm and confidence grow as they learn new skills. It’s great to be able to recognise this achievement and we look forward to next stage in both their learning and development.”
