Pupil Referral Units (PRUs) are one of the most challenging projects we undertake. With passion, enthusiasm and sheer determination we have a history of successful programmes, many resulting with students continuing their education at catering colleges.
With first hand experience, we understand exactly how these students feel which comes across in our teaching style. These workshops are so special, enjoyable and a delight to deliver.
Regular workshops with charities including Mencap where the students learn in a relaxed, supervised and safe environment how to cook simple healthy recipes. This has also helped improve motor skills and co-ordination. Some students are now serving community lunches which is amazing.
Cooking can also be used for sensory workshops for those less able or mobile. Everybody should be able to experience cooking.
We offer personal private sessions for those that do not work as well in group environments.
Last Christmas I was looking for a someone to help my grandaughter to cook not only cakes but meals too. She would like to be a chef and loves experimenting with flavours. Luckily I came across Carole's Cooking school and bought vouchers for a Christmas pressie. Milly has enjoyed every session and comes home to proudly show off the skills she has learnt and tempt us with the meals she has prepared and has the recipes in her new file. She will then cook again another day for us. As adults we were very impressed with the organisation of the day and the grouping of the children according to their skills. Each child progressing when ready. The groups are small and the helpers well aware of each child's progress. The atmosphere is of a listening, working group of very involved youngsters thrilled with the results of their work.
