Last week, our alternative education provision No Limits held open days for their online enterprise and prints shop ‘Prints Charming’.
The open days provided potential learners with the opportunity to explore the work environment, where they would gain a range of functional and social abilities. Applying vocational skills, students create a range of items for the shop including: personalised mugs, jigsaw puzzles and t-shirts.
Potential students were able to chat with staff and existing learners to find out about the equipment and space they would be using.
Bethany Hughes, MacIntyre’s Community Learning Facilitator at the shop said:
“Prints Charming provides an opportunity to develop and learn new skills in a work based environment. Establishing communication and approaches to work that are unique to each person, without the pressure and expectations that may be present in other placements. It builds a range of transferable skills that can be put to practise in different contexts and environments, thus expanding independence and work related opportunities.”
The shop is now taking personalised gift orders for Father’s Day. The final date you can place an order is Monday 11 June.
