Students from New College Stamford’s Skills for Work and Living department were welcomed to Grange Farm, Wansford Peterborough where they were complimenting their learning with hands on experience looking after animals.
The Animal Care group put what they have been learning at college in to practice, gaining insight in to how a real working stable operates including grooming, mucking out and looking after horses.
Skills for Work and Living student Braidy Pell (17) said:
I enjoyed getting experience at the farm especially cleaning out and grooming the horses
The students are currently studying Skills for Work and Living courses that are specifically designed to help you develop your personal and social skills, literacy and numeracy skills and independent living skills for those with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.
Students take part in multiple work experience visits throughout the year including visits to Burghley House where they engage in other activities such as horticulture.
