Mobility Programme Success
Tue, 17 November 2009
Congratulations to Melissa Chadderton, Scott Doyle and Emma Twiddy, who have all successfully completed ‘The Mobility Programme’ at Tameside College. The Mobility Programme is aimed at students who have difficulty travelling independently and Melissa, Scott and Emma were overjoyed to receive their ‘Independent Travel’ certificates.
Melissa Chadderton attended Tameside College for 2 years, finishing her last academic year on the Entry Level Relationships course. Melissa worked hard over the year to gain the certificate, and now travels on her own to The Learning Centre in Hyde.
Scott Doyle worked on The Mobility Programme before the summer, whilst he was attending The Step Up Project in Hattersley. He felt he had a few issues that he needed to tackle before starting the Public Services course at Hyde Clarendon this September.
Emma Twiddy spent 3 years at Tameside College in Ashton, finishing her last academic year on the NVQ Level 1 Catering course. Emma has autism, which presents more challenges to everyday life than many understand. However, she worked really hard to gain her independence through ‘The Mobility Programme’ which now enables her to travel on the bus to her new college in Oldham this term.
Lesley Mason, course leader would like to say well done to these students in completing the programme and wishes them the best of luck for the future. Support is on a one-to -one basis and is specifically designed around your needs. If you need to know more about this programme, please contact Lesley Mason on 0161 908 6785.
