Life skills

We offer a safe and structured environment for young people to develop the skills they need to live as independently as possible and make real life choices as they reach adulthood.

Life skills are therefore well-integrated into the broad and balanced curriculum offered at Sketchley School and Forest House. The skills we help to develop include:

  • Employability skills
  • Appropriate work behaviour
  • Budgeting
  • Personal finance
  • Communication and organisational skills
  • Team work
  • Social skills
  • Cooking
  • Domestic household skills
  • Independent travel skills
