Social and emotional development at Hereward College

Promoting Social and emotional development at Hereward College

Hereward College, which specialises in educating young people with learning disabilities and additional needs, has been praised by Ofsted inspectors who said students there “enjoy their learning” and “feel safe and protected”. At Hereward College we believe that emotional self-awareness and resilience is central to achieving life success, independence and well-being. 

This is developed through areas such as trust, security, creativity and self-discovery. All learners have access to Learning Mentors who support learners with their personal development in a supportive and understanding environment.

Learners discover who they are, what they like and why in one to one sessions, groups and unstructured social times.

These lifelong skills provide a platform for developing into mature and independent young adults, able to make choices, form good relationships and manage emotional responses positively.

The skills also contribute to curricular achievement, individual wellbeing, employability skills and future success.Learners who receive emotion coaching are more likely to:

  • Perform better academically
  • Be well liked by others
  • Have fewer behavioural problems
  • Have fewer infectious illnesses
  • Be more emotionally stable
  • Be more resilient
  • Focus attention and motivate themselves

Hereward College is a college for young people with disabilities and additional needs based in Coventry. Since 1971 we have been offering inclusive provision and specialist facilities for both day and residential learners with complex disabilities and learning difficulties.

Our vision is to prepare our learners for the next stage of their lives, providing them with outstanding employability skills and greater control over their future. We have a focus on creating independent individuals who can make more of their own decisions about work, education, health and living.

We have extensive partnerships with employers and an expanding supported internship study programme. The internships build upon all the skills that the young people have developed in college and extend them even further in real work situations.

Political activity is also important to the Hereward community and we encourage our learners to have a ‘voice’ in the issues that affect them. We also support the Natspec and NUS campaigns which addresses the inequalities faced by young people with learning difficulties or disabilities.

We are extremely proud of the achievements of all our learners and our hugely committed and dedicated staff which support them.

Alloy Wheel Repairs & Refurbishment in Scotland

Alloy Wheel Repairs & Refurbishment in Scotland

When you own a car, you want it to stand out from the rest. By customising the wheels on your car, you can express your personality and yet make your ride look so outstanding; people won’t be able to keep their eyes off it. Alloy wheels can make a big difference as to how your car or vehicle looks and drives on the road. Because of this, motorists – often led by the custom car fraternity, have been upgrading to larger alloy wheels for many years, replacing the basic steel wheel which is often fitted to a car with a set of custom alloys.

While they look great, alloy wheels can often present a problem for the motorist. Often the wheel itself won’t be as tough or durable as a conventional steel wheel and can be more easily damaged. When they are damaged, bent or curbed do you need to completely replace them? Replacing your wheels can cost a lot of money and, should you only need to replace one wheel, you may not be able to get the same style of wheel.

Alloy Wheel Repair is often not a simple process. The repair depends on the type of wheel you have, whether it is a painted, polished, or machined rim wheel with a painted centre. It also depends on the type of damage that has occurred. Whether your car alloys are subject to minor road scratches or major cracks, specialists alloy wheel repairs and refurbishment companies, such as Diamond Cut Wheels of Glasgow are able to rapidly repair and refurbish your alloy wheels to help get you back on the road again quickly and safely. And, at a fraction of the cost of replacement alloy wheels!

Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels offer specialist care and services available to help your alloy wheels maintain their top class appearance. A typical repair and refurbishment will be completed within 2-3 working days and a collection & delivery option is available.

So what is diamond cutting? This process entails skimming your alloy wheels with a high powered diamond coated buffer, leaving a sophisticated shined surface to your alloy wheel rims. A protective coat of lacquer is then applied to your alloys to finish off the process. Although a diamond cut finish is not possible on all cars, most of the alloy wheels we see can be skimmed in this fashion for the latest in alloy style and to give your ride the look that gets you noticed. It can even add a little extra protection against kerbside bumps and scrapes and chipping from the road. These hazards can leave unwanted markings and damage to your wheel trims, so get protection the diamond way with Diamond Cut Alloys.

At our workshop in East Kilbride, Scotland, our trained experts will carry out all that is needed to make your alloy wheels stand out from the rest; many of the jobs can be completed within 48 hours and we provide this service at very competitive prices.

There are many ways for you to contact us, you can call us and you can phone us on 07824 565280 or visit our website which provides full and comprehensive information on the range of alloy wheel repair and refurbishment services we offer.
