Learning to cook as part of Future Choices timetable
As part of L’s Future Choices timetable, independent life skills have been incorporated into his learning. One of L’s favourite sessions has been cooking.
L really enjoys spending time with his friends and learning new skills. “Learning to cook is helping me to become independent and that is what I love.” By developing these essential skills, he has been able to engage more with the people that he lives with and share a meal with them.
Stepping up to join Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme
Through EmployAbility, L has joined the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award and he has selected cooking as his chosen skill. His decision to join the award scheme was a huge step for him. It has shown how much the Future Choices programme has encouraged him to become more independent and confident in himself.
It is the first time that EmployAbility has been able to offer people supported by both Future Choices and Supported Internship, a chance to join the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. L is challenging himself to learn new skills and develop existing ones. He is very much looking forward to his next challenge of learning how to cook outdoors!
