The Resource Centre ensures that our students are prepared to venture on future challenges life offers beyond their schooling experience.
Tasks carried out are threefold. Students are prepared for:
(A). The World of Work;
(B). Entrance into other local Educational Establishments;
(C). Entrance into Ability Training Centres for Adults.
(A). The World of Work:
Students are prepared for the world of work by:
(i). Being given job experiences in various work settings (e.g. Old People’s Homes, Local Councils, Nurseries, etc.);
(ii). Setting up a compilation of students’ portfolios;
(iii). Ensuring that students master employability skills that enhance more job opportunities through centre-based and community-based activities;
(iv). Ensuring awareness of support services (e.g. ETC – Supported Employment, KNPD services, etc.) through information and guidance to all stakeholders.
(B). Other Educational Establishments:
The Resporce Centre through the Vocational Exploration Co-ordinator ensures that our students are made aware of other local educational establishments (e.g. MCAST- Pathway to Independent Living Programme) and help them to move to such establishments.
(C). Ability Training Centres:
Students who cannot make it to the world of work, but who could benefit more by attending Ability Training Centres, would have special ‘Vocational Profiles’ set-up. The ‘Vocational Exploration’ co-ordinator compiles these students’ profiles and liaises with the persons who are responsible for the Ability Training Centres to ensure and facilitate a smooth transition.
