stepscic_word_p No Comments

We are pleased to be able to announce the launch of our on-site salon. Our sessions are run by Jaime who as a fully qualified Level 2 hairdresser has a wealth of experience with hair and beauty. Our attendees are able to learn how to wash, dry and style hair using our training heads which have real human hair. Our salon also comes equipped with a range of beauty products that allow our attendees to learn how to apply make-up and nail polish. A huge well done to Abigail who has shown a real flair for creating updo hairstyles as well as providing excellent nail polish treatments. Our salon is proving extremely popular with both staff and attendees who are also taking advantage of Jamie’s skills with the scissors!

Accident and Emergency Tour

stepscic_word_p No Comments

As part of our Health and Wellbeing sessions some of our attendees today visited Royal Albert Edward Infirmary. Our attendees visited a number of departments including A and E and X-ray and thoroughly enjoyed finding out about the different equipment and what it’s used for.  We were able to experience not only what it felt like to have our blood pressure and temperature taken but also to have a plaster cast or sling put on. To complete our accident and emergency tour we took a look inside an ambulance so that we would know what to expect if we were a patient. Our attendees thoroughly enjoyed their tour of the hospital and were very proud to receive their certificates. STEPScic would like to thank all staff at Royal Albert Edward Infirmary.

Oakfield High School and College Visit

Today, we have welcomed Oakfield College to our wood workshop in Golborne. Students were keen to take part in a couple of workshops that allowed them to construct using tools and a variety of materials. We are pleased to show the results of the owl workshop, in which students worked creatively to construct their own individualised owl, which they were then able to take away. Well done everyone, they look awesome!

Our attendees have been busy in the workshop this week producing bird table tops.  This project has allowed our attendees to demonstrate their skills and provide evidence towards their next Open Awards certificate.  As well as Construction attendees at STEPScic are currently working towards Open Awards certificates in Art and Design, Gardening, Vehicle Cleaning and Valeting and Food Preparation.  We look forward to celebrating everyone’s achievement in the new year at our annual awards event.

  

Blackpool Tower Dungeon

Our attendees thoroughly enjoyed the cast of actors, scenes and special effects that welcomed us at Blackpool Tower Dungeons.  We had such great fun getting involved in the different scenes with some of us even confessing our crimes in front of the Judge!  Following our escape from the dungeons we all enjoyed a fabulous lunch of fish and chips before taking time to enjoy the promenade and do a bit of shopping.  We would like to thank Blackpool Tower Dungeons for their warm welcome.

Dragon Boat Race 2018

It is with great pleasure that we were able to support Think Ahead today with their annual fundraising event the Dragon Boat Race which was held at Leigh and Lowton Sailing Club.  The event brought together a number of local businesses for a fun and competitive afternoon which raised money and awareness for those affected by stroke.  Director Terry Mann and Senior Support Worker Ian Young represented STEPScic and joined representatives from Think Ahead, Embrace and Express IT to become the ‘Wellbeing Warriors’.   The first race saw the ‘Wellbeing Warriors’ become victors as they powered their way to the finishing line and went on to finish 5th overall.  A huge congratulations to Leigh Business Group who had the fastest time on the day and were the overall winners.  The event was attended by our attendees who enjoyed being part of the occasion and cheering on their team. We would like to thank Think Ahead for inviting us and to congratulate them on hosting such a successful event.

We would love to hear from you
