JPC Accreditation award
This programme is specially prepared by JPC staff to help you gain valuable work experience and increase your independence by developing essential living skills. Maths and English are embedded throughout the course to further develop your abilities and help you to gain employability skills that really matter. Literacy and numeracy are embedded in all we do, e.g. reading a recipe and weighing out food!
There are 3 progression levels.
Every level develops skills within the following units as described in the Gov. SEND 19-25 year old document ‘Preparing for Adulthood’.
Having friends and relationships
Moving towards paid employment
There are lots of opportunities on the farm for work experience, voluntary work or even paid employment!
You could play a role in animal care, gardening, groundsman, working our Orangery Bistro and lots more!
We will help you develop skills necessary to experience some of these roles and maybe even gain employment here at JPC Community Farm! There are so many new and exciting opportunities as the farm grows and grows!
Moving towards paid Employment
Current clients and their stories...
Aimee has been part of our programme and has developed some great skills which she has shared with all our guests in the Orangery.
Aimee is training as a Waitress in the Orangery and finds writing orders down difficult. I developed an alternative menu to help her achieve her goals. The Velcro menu has pictures as well as text and her job instantly becomes easier.
Matthew is on our JPC Accreditation programme and has a huge passion for horses.
He has developed a strong bond with one of the horses and he has developed a long term project to train the horse to walk along side a wheelchair.
This is beneficial to both Matthew and JPC farm as he describes it as 'his kind of meditation'. As our farm grows, we can eventually get otheryoung people In wheelchairs to walk the horse just like Matthew due to his training.
He walks the horse every week and gets so much enjoymeny from it. He is even writing his own childrens story with the horse and him as the main characters.
