Oliver’s story: Exceeding expectations

Oliver has exceeded all expectations since starting this Pathway. He started at Landmarks in September 2017 after six weeks of transitions from school. Oliver found his last year at school difficult, becoming anxious and disengaged, resulting in his placement breaking down.

Since starting at Landmarks Oliver has gone from strength to strength, settling in really well and managing his anxieties whilst engaging in a varied timetable. In order to stretch his educational progress even further, Oliver moved onto a Further Education Pathway to ensure his time at college is suitably challenging.

His Tutor says “Oliver has really progressed in all areas since joining Landmarks and it’s clear that he really enjoys coming here. He is always willing to try anything and always engages in every activity. Oliver has grown in confidence and has learned lots of new skills in areas such as personal safety, communication and independence skills.”

Oliver has now expressed his interest in work experience and as a result of this he will soon begin a placement at our Hospitality and Catering provision, The Archer.
