Foundation Learning students clean up their act

Thursday 29th June 2017

Students from North Warwickshire and Hinckley College have been working with Nuneaton and Bedworth Council over the last couple of months to give parks and play areas across the region a late spring clean. 

The foundation learning students have been working in the community as part of their studies to prepare them for work.  Skate parks in Nuneaton and Bedworth, as well as play areas in Buttermere and St Giles parks in Exhall were all refurbished in the work.

Ian Lee, Lecturer in Preparation for Life and Work at the college, commented: “We believe it is important to prepare our students for the world of work.  Through this project, they will have learned valuable skills to develop their personal and social development.”

Ian Lloyd, Portfolio Holder for Arts and Leisure at Nuneaton and Bedworth Council, said: "The link up with the college has been a great success and the students have made a tremendous contribution to how the sites look. This we hope gave them an insight into the work environment and will give them confidence going forward".

The Foundation Learning programme at North Warwickshire & Hinckley College is designed to support those with special educational needs/disabilities helping those aged between 16-24 to develop a range of important social, academic and vocational skills, encouraging independent living and employability.
