It's your school, your voice!

Stay in the Know

Feedback from learners this term:

"That's [learner's work] brilliant he absolutely loves coming"

"I'm so happy, thanks to you" [the team]

"Great school would recommend lovely staff and helpful learners! fun times" 

"... . I have spoken with both [staff members]who supported the guys and received nothing but good feedback. They both said you worked with the guys extremely well, involving and empowering them in the same ways that we work at Goldcrest House. It is clear that we share the same values in promoting skills in the individuals we support and that you teach."

Goldcrest House and Falcons Learning

Working together to give opportunities.

Goldcrest House
The House provides long-term, integrated, specialist day and residential care, outreach support and respite care and has built a reputation as a quality service in the area. Goldcrest House provides residential care to adults over the age of 18 whose primary need is due to autism. Goldcrest House can also meet the needs of service users who have additional difficulties, including those with general developing disabilities and those with a history of behaviours that have challenged other services.


Learning how to work on an engine

Steve introduces Goldcrest service users to stripping mechanical parts. Here they are removing the sump from a very old Triumph Herald engine.


Hands on learning.

A few notes. 

1 June 2022

Working with Goldcrest house has no impact on the core business of providing alternative education provision for young people. Goldcrest clients use our facilities when the under 16 learners have gone home and are accompanied by a member of the Goldcrest team. I am really happy that more members of the community can access Falcons Learning.

Understanding how trauma can feel is very difficult for those with no experience. Steve is working with these learners to attempt to help them understand through a multisensory approach.


Understanding how to help learners overcome barrierss

08 February 2022

Does it matter if the learner has their hood up? 
Should the learner be fiddling or doodling during teaching time?
Are we meeting the needs of the learner or are we making the learner meet our view of education?

Sharing good practice with our colleagues across the education sector is really important. We are happy If we can help fellow professionals help their learners better.
