Foundation Studies End of Year Event

08 October 2014

Bracknell & Wokingham College’s Foundation Studies at Wick Hill has come to another academic year end. In an exhibition style open event, students presented their best and favourite pieces of work from throughout the year to guests at the event. 

Student Oliver Kent was proud to display photos of himself during work experience and pictures that he had created in his art lessons. Oliver said:

“I’ve learnt lots; how to change a tyre on a car in mechanics, I’ve learnt about money too; things that help me every day. I’ve also been out on work experience learning about gardening.”

Barbara Wade, Advocate for Just Advocacy, runs a self-advocacy group for the students. She was delighted to see the confidence and enthusiasm with which the students were talking about their work and experiences during the course:

“I know these students well through the work I do with them in our sessions. We talk about things that they are likely to meet in their lives such as stress, anxiety, relationship building, benefits, and about how to deal with things when they go wrong. I’m so pleased to have been invited today to this fantastic event; it’s great to see the students so proud to show their work.’ 

Lynne Judge, LDD/Pathways Team Leader said:

“It’s been absolutely brilliant teaching these students this year; every day is interesting and rewarding and most of all fun. Some of the students will be staying with us for next year, some are moving on to the Level 1 Hospitality course, and some are going to supported work experience placements.

“At this event - the students get to present the work they are most proud of, and it really shows how they’ve progressed and grown in confidence throughout the year.”
