Independent Living Skills Training
During your Pre-Entry Assessment we will work with you to identify the areas you would like to improve upon or build confidence in, offered through a range of training methods and at a level that will allow you to achieve your goals.
Independent Living Skills (ILS) training aims to give you the skills and confidence to live independently. ILS training at RNC offers you one-to-one sessions on almost every aspect of your daily life. We help you develop your skills and confidence to live a full and independent life at your own speed.
The ILS programme is specifically tailored to suit you and meet your objectives. We provide information and techniques about helpful products that can aid you to accomplish a wide range of everyday tasks. We provide training and advice about home modifications, kitchen adaptations and general organisation in your household.
Whether it’s washing your clothes, preparing a meal, making a balance transfer at your bank, enjoying social activities or a supermarket shop, these are all skills that you will require in your life after RNC.
BTEC Jamie Oliver Home Cooking Skills
If you have a particular interest in cooking and would like to develop your cooking skills further, you may like to consider taking the BTEC Jamie Oliver Home Cooking Skills course.
Once you and our ILS Team are confident of your ability, you may wish to consider self-catering. The self-catering scheme is ideal if you are planning to progress on to university or move into your own home after RNC.
With on-going support and advice from the ILS and Residential teams, you can choose to create one or more meals a week, or even produce all meals for yourself. Depending on which option you select, some or all of your meal allowance will be paid into your bank account. You will then be able to plan and budget and be responsible for purchasing and storing ingredients, preparing and cooking your meals.
