Why choose Learning for Life and Work?

These courses can help you develop skills for an independent life, whether that is in the home, or learning skills you need to enter the workplace. You will develop personal, social and emotional skills which will help promote independence in daily life and in the workplace.


Why choose us?

Courses include skills for living and work, hospitality and catering and vocational studies programmes where students will sample programmes across the College. Entry Level facilities include the well-resourced training flat and sensory kitchen and garden at the Crewe Campus and independent living area and tabletbased computers at the Ellesmere Port Campus. These are all designed to help you experience hands-on learning during your time at College. You will also work towards functional skills in Maths and English.

We encourage you to be creative and will help you prepare for your next step, whether this is progressing to Level 1 courses, an Apprenticeship or Traineeship, a Supported Internship, into employment such as food service, customer service and support roles. For some students, they will progress into further independence in their everyday life.

Student Spotlight

Chloe Foreman

Skills For Life and Work - Hospitality and Catering Level 1

Ruskin Community High School

“I have really enjoyed the time I’ve spent at College so far and I have made a lot of new
friends. The most enjoyable part of my Entry level course was the cooking and baking. I’m passionate about cookery so this course suited me a lot. The staff were so helpful
and supportive which has given me more confidence. “The course has helped me to progress to the Level 1 Hospitality and Catering course, something that I didn’t think I’d be doing when I started College. I love working in the kitchens and I’m always really proud of myself when I make something new. I can’t believe how far I have come. I love learning new skills and putting them into practice. I enjoy my course so much! I can’t wait to see where this year at College takes me! !”
