This short course builds on and promotes the development of a range of personal, social and practical skills. This happens in the context of students learning how to take care of their physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. It encourages students to become more responsible and independent. There are opportunities throughout for students to explore the services available in the wider community and to actively participate in these services. Practical life skills such as using money, greeting people appropriately, making real-life choices and demonstrating appropriate social behaviour are also developed throughout the course. Knowledge, skills and attitudes for life are developed through links with the community, creative projects, numeracy, communication and literacy.
