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.
A Typical Day at BCIC will involve being outdoors, mowing, planting and caring for garden areas. 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 flower beds or the dimension of a pond.
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.
