Students from the Independent Living course at Bradford College welcomed an extra class member on Thursday – the college principal, David Harwood.
Mr Harwood joined 44 students for their weekly sports session at the college’s Trinity Green campus.
Run by PAD, the Physical Activity for Disabled People project, the classes allow students to play games and sports and learn about healthy lifestyles and fitness.
Mr Harwood enjoyed playing basketball and tag and a number of other activities with the group aged 16 to 25-years.
The Independent Living pathway offers a bespoke programme of study for students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities who are working towards Entry Level 1 qualifications.
The programme provides an individualised, person-centred learning opportunity to young adults wanting to enhance independence and personal skills in preparation for adulthood.
The programme can enable progression into further learning, independent living or supported employment/volunteering through a diverse range of practical skills and learning opportunities.
