Wac Nites

Evening performing arts and media programmes for those with mild/moderate learning disabilities

Wac Nites is an inclusion programme specifically designed for those with mild/ moderate learning disabilities.

Wac Nites runs on Wednesday evenings in term time, and welcomes young people with mild to moderate learning disabilities. Led by tutors with a wealth of experience in this area of teaching and learning, young people are encouraged to engage in a variety of Performing and Creative Arts sessions, working towards sharing’s of their work at the end of each term. Sessions are tailored to the needs of the group, and the topics and activities change each term to provide a rounded experience.

In addition to providing high quality performing and creative arts classes, the group is encouraged to develop social skills during the sessions and work collaboratively across each term to encourage team building, socialization, communication and social skills development.
