We're about to embark on a very exciting new project in partnership with ASDAN, as one of the organisations chosen to help pilot their new Moving On course that will equip young people aged 16+ with the knowledge and skills they need to ‘move on’ to living independently.
The course is for young people aged 16 and over who are preparing to live independently for the first time. They may be leaving care, moving out of their family home or moving away to university. Moving On is structured around five different aspects of what it means to live independently as a young adult. These are:
Building a home – tenancy, home maintenance, laundry, cleaning and home safety
Being healthy – physical health, emotional wellbeing, healthy eating and healthy living habits
Starting your career – further and higher education, training, exploring job opportunities, applying for jobs and being an employee
Managing money – budgeting, borrowing, saving and spending
Relating to people – identity, healthy relationships, boundaries, support and being part of a community
