We love to speak about stories of success and the brilliant work our team do. Success can be measured in many different ways and our goal is to support the students in our care and bring out the best in them.
The team at Pengwern College said goodbye to the amazing Rhys during Summer 2020. Rhys, one of our blind students has made some incredible achievements since he first started with us including being able to navigate his surroundings, how to prepare food safely in the kitchen and also picked up a few tricks on the piano! To give him a send-off he’ll remember, the team put all his best memories into a picture book paired with an audio experience so he could re-live some of his highlights from over the years.
"Wow - what can I say! I’ve been at Cambian Pengwern College all morning, supporting staff for L’s healthcare needs for her first day at college. What an absolutely WONDERFUL college, with such WONDERFUL staff taking such good care of L. L has two lovely 1:1s who are very hands on and extremely caring, who have now been named “Bestie” by L.
Lots more paperwork has been completed too today, for L’s induction day and her timetable has been all set out for her. Cookery, Animal care, ILS, Essential learning, music and some work experience has been added in too, for L to work in the tuck shop, serving staff and other students, to help her with money skills and communication. L enjoyed seeing the animals this morning, including feeding two donkeys, and laughing as Terri the Turkey kept walking into the classrooms, then a lovely little walk through the woodland area, singing “We’re going on a bear hunt”.
I left L to come home, but I am very relaxed, knowing L was very happy and safe, and she will be home about 4:30pm."
"Mum describes you all there as “incredible” she cannot get over the quality of support for LD and how happy she is with you all there, lovely to hear – mum said that staff are going the extra mile and checking LD is ok if she hasn’t had a good day, and communicating with Alder Hey to support LD to prepare for her operation, mum is blown away by the care and support LD has."
"Keep up the good work my students have really benefited from being able to access your provision."
"In all the dealings I have had with the staff at Pengwern they have been fantastic and gone over and above for the young people they have dealt with."
"Staff give learners exemplary support and guidance that is very well tailored to meet their individual needs.”
“We are so pleased with the care our daughter is receiving at Pengwern. Their professionalism and experience is a perfect match for our daughter’s needs. We have been overwhelmed at the staff’s positive attitude to her and have seen the difference that has made."
“We have all loved working with the learners from Pengwern, seeing the progress they make in the time they are with us is amazing!."
