LVS Hassocks ISA Developing Work and Life Skills Case Study
LVS Hassocks are proud to showcase the actions we take to helping students gain work experience that will be valuable when they leave education.
The Independent Schools Association published an article explaining the schools’ aims, the actions that help achieve this, the outcomes involved and next steps to continue developing work life skills.
In the article it states:
“LVS Hassocks focuses on three main areas of development:
The school encourages students to become healthy, empowered and included adults who participate in society.
This project was set up to give students opportunities to develop confidence and independence while they practice social interaction and communication, something most students with a diagnosis of autism find particularly difficult.
The project also aims to introduce students to business skills that will help them build a CV and support their ambitions to sustain work and independence in the future and to develop life skills like managing money and budgeting.
The Oast Café provides, amongst other great benefits, a perfect forum for students to practice a variety of skills from front-of-house hospitality and social skills to developing money handling skills and calculations. Students also supported the setup of the café by decorating and upcycling items. The horticulture area adds another dimension to the school’s diverse offering”.
