Opportunities

Let’s go fly a kite…
Or bake a cake. Or take up Zumba. Or try laughter yoga.

Whatever your interests, there’s something for everyone on our opportunities programme.

We do everything we can to help our learners pursue their passions – we’ve even helped someone take to the skies in a plane.

Our activities run Monday–Friday, 10.00 am to 4.00 pm, but we are flexible, so if you’re looking for opportunities on evenings or weekends, please contact us.

What we offer

From relaxing art classes to joyful music sessions, everyone is happy at Condover College – whether you’re a wallflower or the life of the party.

Our list of activities is ever growing, so here is just a sample of what’s on offer:

  • Music
  • Zumba
  • Swimming
  • Art
  • Laughter yoga
  • Cookery
  • Day trips
  • Gardening
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Bowling
  • Work experience
  • Cinema

As with all our programmes, communication runs throughout our activities and we work towards achieving our learners’ communication goals every day.

We also occasionally run themed events, such as Spanish week where we study artists like Picasso and try Spanish food and music, or history club where learners visit sites from a different era each week.

Location

Although our opportunities programme is based at Longbow House, Shrewsbury, we’re often out and about in the community. We run activities in village halls, join in with local craft fairs and coffee mornings and access public facilities like the local swimming pool and gym.

For some learners, we also provide work experience opportunities at places like the bowling alley, stables or residential homes for the elderly.
