Students in Cygnus Class and Aquila Class have been hard at work in the community in recent weeks. Cygnus visited ‘Crumbs’, a local charitable training centre for disadvantaged adults, to help create an outdoors space for their cafe (pictured). To find out more about Crumbs, visit their website: https://www.crumbs.org.uk/.
Cygnus Class have also been to the Marriott Hotel where they met the Deputy Director of Human Resources for the South of England. She answered students’ questions about working in hospitality and employment opportunities for people with autism and other disabilities, explaining about equal opportunities. For them, she said, attitude and experience are more important than qualifications.
Meanwhile, students from Aquila Class took part in their first work experience visit to Studland where they worked alongside National Trust wardens to help clear the peninsula of invasive plant species. They did such a great job that they have been invited back and are looking forward to their next visit.
