Is’s experience of Treloar’s
College student Is has shared with us her thoughts on being at Treloar’s, the support she has received and the difference it has made on her life:
As I only started at Treloar’s in November, I still feel quite new, but I am excited about what I will be able to achieve by the time I leave. I have really enjoyed experiencing living away from home. I have learnt a lot of skills that I will definitely use in the future to support me with independent living. I feel like I have gained a lot of independence and confidence in myself.
I am proud of the way I have settled into life at Treloar’s and have made some great relationships with the staff and students. This was really important to me when I started. I am very happy with the subjects I have chosen to study. I have particularly enjoyed photography and working in the dark room. I love my physio sessions with Liz too. We haven’t stopped! We have done swimming, walking, tricycling, rebound and I have my own core stability programme. Liz always listens to me and I think we have that same ‘don’t give up’ attitude. I feel like my body has become a lot stronger from our sessions. I love the multi-disciplinary approach to everything and that everyone works together.
For me, Treloar’s has the perfect balance of education and wellbeing, giving me the opportunity to socialise after college as well as being taught skills for life.
I really like the fact that everything is centred around what I want to achieve and getting me prepared for my future. I feel really supported and empowered to do my best.
