Solihull College & University Centre has recently worked with Parkview Day Centre in Solihull to offer members of the centre a chance to gain qualifications.
The centre, which is funded by Solihull Council, is for people who have a learning disability aged 19 or above to attend to learn new skills. The College has partnered with Park View to offer 4 students; Rachel Drakeley, Laura Bradnock, Parvinder Kaur and Steven Dooley the opportunity to gain their entry level 1 qualification in employability skills.
The 4 students completed the short course which included written work as well as first aid skills and computer skills. The students supported each other throughout the course programme and gained significant confidence as well as their qualification.
Staff members of Park View thanked Solihull College for their support for those who use the day centre and wish to work with the College in the future.
