At Tuition Service we believe that students need support not only educationally but socially and through the Life Skills lessons they are learning skills to support them outside the school environment.
"Life skills is very helpful because it teaches things outside of just the basic curriculum, that are equally as important and relevant to the lives of young people. It helps with many aspects of life, such as health, cooking, looking after yourself among other important skills."
Staff accompanied students to a local supermarket so they could compare prices for an average weekly shop helping them gain independence.
"I enjoyed going to the shop. It was insightful to see how much the cost of some of the things actually were."
