This is a useful infographic that CCC have produced – R2W are part of this journey.
Across R2W we already work preparing individuals for adulthood through some of our existing projects. We are currently working in partnership with Cumbria County Council and Signature Supported Housing developing a new project called Learning2Live.
In response to a need for more options for young people with learning disabilities in transition from school to adulthood; Right2Work and Oaklea have developed a unique concept. A specialist provision that offers a high standard of education and care for students aged 18 to 25 years with an Education Health and Care Plan.
Our Learning2Live project is specifically designed to develop young people’s personal, social and transferable skills to enable them to better live and work within their local communities.
Our first Learning2Live project will be situated in Windermere, in the heart of the Lake District, where we will be supporting learners over the course of the three-year programme to gain the skills and confidence they need to move onto the next stage in their lives, whether that is gaining employment, moving towards more independent living or progressing to further study.
Our commitment to providing high quality and person-centred education and care using specialist approaches and individual learning programmes, utilising our unique on-site learning and supported living facilities, provided by our partners at Signature Supported Housing.
Learners on the programme with an Education Health & Care Plan (EHCP) will be offered the opportunity to participate in a full and active curriculum: promoting, supporting and challenging them to make progress and achieve their fullest potential.
Our person-centred approach provides individualised learning programmes developed to effectively match their needs, personal decisions and aspirations, with a focus on daily living skills, vocational qualifications or more independent living.
