Skills Tank’s focus is totally on giving adults 16+ with learning disabilities/difficulties and behaviour that challenges a better, brighter more fulfilled life through no pressure, fun and practical education and activities.
How we help adults who learn differently
We can help you and the adult(s) you care for in many ways as we work closely with social care and health professionals who have a wide range of specialisms including; community nursing, speech and language therapy, behavioural nursing, psychology, and psychiatry. With working partnerships in place with many charities and organisations such as the NHS, Birmingham City Council, Solihull Council and Advocacy Services there is also the probability we can signpost you to the correct people to help resolve some of the challenges you face.
Just how do we do it?
In brief, we use an exciting, practical and wide ranging curriculum containing variety, we are able to enhance ‘Skills for Life’ for people who learn differently. The curriculum we use will be person centred, to ensure its suitability to the personal needs of the adult you care for and to encourage enjoyment for learning through a variety of proven teaching and learning methods.
Our key objective is to encourage the learner to enjoy the learning process and grow in confidence and self-esteem, enabling them to grow at their own pace and feel comfortable whilst doing so. The emphasis is on enjoyment and not pressure to learn.
Care First and Skills Tank are British Institute for Learning Disabilities (Bild) members and we take our commitment of being a Birmingham Business Charter for Social Responsibility member very seriously.
