The residential homes at Coleg Ty’r Eithin offer a fully integrated approach to meaningful learning with countless opportunities for practising and rehearsing the transferable skills which have been gained during the day.
Everyone is encouraged to help out in the household, each according to their individual skills and abilities. Produce from the farm and craft items from the workshops are brought home and students experience pride and joy from making valued contributions to the household community, and gain a wide range of social and practical living skills in the process.
Residential homes are situated within the local community and provide students with many opportunities for engaging with events and activities and develop new interests and friendships.
Our models of Residential Service vary to ensure we can provide the best match for individual needs. We pride ourselves on domestic sized households and support structures which can be adapted to overcome challenges as well as provide opportunities for learning and progression.
Staff will continuously assess students’ abilities and ensure appropriate support is provided to keep them safe within an informed learning environment.
Students can experience our Shared Lives model where they live with Shared Lives Providers or a Team Home provision where they are supported by a consistent team of Engagement Workers. All our staff within both models of Residential Service receive extensive training and development opportunities and are highly committed to the research based work they perform.
