Skills 4 Life - Day Opportunities
Weekday Opportunities for 16 to 25-year-olds, from 9.30 am to 3.30 pm
Based in Wat Tyler Country Park, BOSP’s educational Skills 4 Life service consists of age and need appropriate group activities that take place during the week for young people aged 16 to 25, who have additional needs. Our small groups and high level of support ensures the young people grow in confidence and independence.
A variety of fun and exciting activities are on offer each week, including, amongst others:
- Meal planning, shopping, preparing and serving
- Gardening and basic DIY
- Drama and dance
- Travel training
- Woodland/forestry skills
- Budgeting and money handling
- Personal and home-care
- Social and communication skills
- Quizzes, games, films and music
- Sports including trampolining, swimming, cycling/triking etc.
- Theme parks, zoos and City visits
- First aid and visits to Essex Air Ambulance, police and RNLI
- Residential holiday opportunity
- Opportunities to gain a formal qualification
Skills 4 Life also follows the AET Progression Framework which is designed to support staff in identifying a young person’s learning priorities and measure progression throughout each term. The content of the Progression Framework aims to address skills and understanding that our young people may find challenging due to their additional needs. It is flexible and adaptable to each young person’s strengths and developmental areas.
Please see the posters below for more information about our Skills 4 Life Service.
As with all BOSP Services, we very quickly get over subscribed, so do please get in touch with The BOSP Office on 01268 553117 or email email@example.com if you are interested in your young person attending and would like to know session fees..
NB. Transition - We recommend that you start to consider transition to post 18 services when your young person reaches 15/16 years of age due to the lengthy assessment/social care process.
Transitioning to adult services is not an easy process. Is your young person without a social worker or struggling to access their personal budget? BOSP can help!
Kasey, our friendly Family Advocate, can assist you with:
- Obtaining a personal budget for your young person
- Improving your young person’s daytime and evening social opportunities
- Improving links with social care
- Increasing parent carers respite
