This week, Hall Cliffe School officially unveiled their Vocational Centre to parents, carers and colleagues. The event was the perfect opportunity to show what the centre has to offer, the impact it is already making and some of the excellent work that pupils are producing.
The purpose built learning centre includes a fully equipped hair salon, motor vehicle and woodwork workshops, industrial catering kitchen and highly resourced learning suites, amongst an ever developing range of facilities. Students can access a wide range of courses that can prepare them in making their first step into their chosen career, as well as acquiring a whole host of important life skills.
The centre was officially opened by Dr Tony Lloyd, who is CEO of the ADHD Foundation and one of the most highly respected figures in the field of special educational needs in the UK
Peter Marshall, Hall Cliffe School’s Head Teacher, commented on the event by saying;
The opening was a fantastic day for our school and I couldn’t have been prouder of all of our staff and pupils for their hard work in making it such a success.
It was a great opportunity to showcase the new vocational centre and all the wonderful facilities and experiences that it offers our students in preparing for life beyond education.
Guests received information on all of the courses that the students are studying and gained an insight into the career pathways that are available to them at post 16.
Overall it was a fantastic event that was enjoyed by all!
