An education for everybody

Sheila Mulvenney Lecturer, At Bedford College, Bedfordshire

Sheila Mulvenney describes her involvement in a pioneering educational course for local people with learning disabilities, and reflects on the progress made since the days when care was delivered in institutions

Iam currently enjoying the challenge of leading a new course at my college. Previously, I managed courses for prospective carers – those studying at GNVQ level for example – or for care professionals studying for higher national certificates or diplomas. This course is different because it is specifically designed for adults with learning disabilities, all of whom need care or support.
