Brogdale CIC provide practical learning experience aimed to enhance skills, provide qualifications and equip young people for a positive next step into adulthood.
Craftworks is a post 16 specialist course where we primarily take students with EHCP's or similar and focus on practical and interactive learning. Small class sizes at our Muddy Wellies Farm (Smeeth) site mean Tutors and TA's can support each student to help them reach their potential.
Our Animal Care at Muddy Wellies is new for September 2019, we are setting up ready to home goats, chickens, ducks and more!!
A typical day at BCIC will involve preparing and feeding the animals, checking and maintaining their health, providing basic treatments as well as maintaining the animal accomodation & shelters.
Each student puts together a portfolio of their work which will include photos as evidence and some writing. Math & English are incorporated as Functional Skills which for example could be measuring out an area for animal grazing and fencing.
Students attend 4 days a week with one day being an off-site practical day to gain work experience.
We would love you to come along and take a look at our site! See the students in action and decide if we are right for you.
