Cardiff and Vale College Work Skills students adopt a ‘Can Do’ approach

Cardiff and Vale College Work Skills 2 students are looking to raise £1,000 for the Leonard Cheshire charity’s Can Do project by climbing the equivalent of Mount Snowdon.

The sponsored climb, which will reach 1,085m, will take place on 17th May.

Can Do is Leonard Cheshire’s project to provide young disabled people with opportunities to build life skills and forge closer clinks between local communities. It provides City and Guilds Qualifications and aims to build confidence in what young people can do for their community.

The Work Skills 2 learners have previously teamed up with Can Do on a social enterprise project where they became fully involved with the community, raising money and supporting various charities. They decided, as part of the project, to also raise money for Can Do so it can continue to help groups like them in gaining skills and qualifications.

Cardiff and Vale College’s Work Skills pathway provides opportunities for people with additional learning needs to develop their independent living skills and help prepare them for the world of work.
