Skills Tank aims to give adults 16+ with learning disabilities/ difficulties and behaviours that challenge a better, brighter more fulfilled life through practical and educational activities.
Helping health and social care students
For many years, students following Health and Social Care Studies at Birmingham Metropolitan College have completed placements at Care First. Typically, students work across a range of locations either at our premises at Great Barr or in one of the many community hubs where we deliver skills training. Students may be offered the option to return to us to complete further work experience. We receive very positive from both students and the college alike.
I have learnt a lot about working with adults with disabilities, it’s given me a good insight into life in my chosen job career.
Placement tutor feedback;
A warm rapport has been developed with both the client group and the staff team, who have made positive remarks about the students’ progress.
Alternative provision for secondary school students
Over the last two years we have worked with a local secondary school to give pupils who are experiencing difficulty in engaging with education the opportunity to experience a different form of education. They have been invited to attend one of our practical workshops to work alongside our tutors and students with mild to moderate learning disabilities.
These pupils have engaged and worked well with us, the experience has helped to boost their confidence and self-esteem and improved their communication skills and motivation.
Pupils invariably show improved engagement when returning to school.
