Social, Cultural, Relational

For the purposes of gainful employment prospects, good relations and personal well-being for life, all our students engaging in Functional Skills do so in the company of staff whose values relate to:

  • positive attitude,
  • appropriate manners,
  • ethical decision-making,
  • healthy living choices,
  • honesty towards self and others,
  • care and respect for self and others.

Emphasis is placed on basic skills such as writing a CV and punctual time-keeping ranging through to navigating the fast-moving changes and pressures facing people today.

Dorset Trade Skills is committed to exemplifying law-abiding and safeguarding practices and the responsible sharing of information.

Mobile phones are not allowed in the workshop or study area. This is to maintain a safe, secure environment for students and staff. We have a responsibility to ensure that machinery and tools are used without potentially dangerous distraction, that learning takes place in a focused manner, and that others in the workplace do not have their right to privacy breached.

Family members are welcome to use the Dorset Trade Skills landline telephone number for any urgent messages to students.
