One-to-One Lessons
 
Entry 1 - Personal Progress
 
Find A Voice offers 1:1 supported sessions in personal progress.
Each session is 45 minutes or 1 hour in duration.
 
The Entry 1 qualifications in Personal Progress are approved Asdan qualifications. They are made up of units which can be broadly divided into the following areas:
 
Personal Development, Functional Skills, Independent Living Skills and Vocational/Work Skills.
 
An example of a topic covered could be 'getting on with other people'. This would be assessed through various activities such as trips, discussion, question and answer, etc. Assessment criteria could be to follow instructions or to ask for / offer help. Some forms of assessment and some units will suit some people and not others. We work together to find units that will be beneficial to the learner.
 
The range of ability required for these sessions is wide and varied. Any learner that falls into any of these categories could achieve this qualification.
 
Learners can fall between the following statements:
 
  • Learners are able to show simple reflex responses to encounters.
  • Learners are able to show that they are aware of activities and experiences.

Life Skills
 
We at Find A Voice believe it is vitally important to give our students the knowledge and skills to be able to have a safe, healthy independent life. The Life Skills 12 week course incorporates many topics that do just that.
The modules are:
  • internet safety
  • money management
  • healthy eating
  • personal hygiene
  • functional relationships
  • how to cope in an emergency
Internet Safety
 
Here at  Find A Voice we often use the computers and the internet with our students so we feel it is very important that they know how to stay safe whilst online. We cover topics such as cyber bullying, the do's and don't's of social media and online shopping.
 
Money Management
 
Money makes the world go round. We cannot function without it. Within this module we will look at:
  • different types of bank accounts
  • where the best place to save money is
  • how to budget our income
  • where to go for money/debt advice
Healthy Eating
 
The Healthy Eating module focuses on enabling the students to consider their diet and behavior. Find A Voice takes great pride in teaching the Healthy Eating course to help enhance the students' social and personal development. We make healthy portion control plates and even plan and prepare a healthy meal.
 
Personal Hygiene
 
This topic is all about keeping ourselves healthy, clean and presentable. We cover many topics within this module such as:
  • dental hygiene
  • personal hygiene e.g. grooming routine, clothes washing, etc.
  • food hygiene
Functional Relationships
 
Find A Voice enhances the student's personal and social development through providing the knowledge and skill to form happy appropriate relationships with family, friends and partners. We will look at behaviours that are both good and bad within any kind of relationship, and what to do if someone does something that you are uncomfortable with.
 
How to cope in an emergency
 
Within this module we will look at ways to deal with emergency situations such as:
  • gas leak
  • power cuts
