Lifeworks Student success
On Friday 15th July Lifeworks Specialist Further Education College enjoyed an emotional day of award celebrations, recognising the amazing achievements of all the Lifeworks College students. The celebrations started with a superb comedy performance by the students, which had the large audience of parents, family members, carers and staff in rapturous laughter. It was also amazing to see the confidence levels of all the students who have all come such a long way.
Karen Dorow Head of Lifeworks College said “At Lifeworks College, and the charity as a whole we believe in the rights of all of individuals and our students with a learning disability, however complex, receive the learning services and support they need to develop the skills and confidence to reach their full potential. Today recognises the dedication, determination and rewards for all of our students’ hard work. They are all truly inspirational and make coning into work each day an absolute joy”.
One parent of a Lifeworks College Learner mentioned “Lifeworks College has provided our son with such a safe and student focused environment that has enabled him to gain confidence and develop his life skills. I highly recommend this College. Great ethos and commitment shown to students”.
