If you are thinking of studying at QAC, you may wish to consider joining us as a residential student. This is an excellent way to develop your independent living and social skills. The ability to form relationships, organise social events, manage money, navigate travel routes, learn how to stay safe, prepare and cook meals and perform household chores are just some of the skills that our residential students develop in the 24-hour curriculum.
Your residential accommodation at QAC will match your needs, personality and your level of independence. As your independence and confidence grows, you might move to new supported accommodation or even to an independent house living with other students.
You will be supported towards your key individual targets by experienced residential teams which include sleep-in and waking night staff. Key Workers support our residential learners outside of the classroom in many different ways. This is done in line with your individual needs. Your Key Worker is often your first point of contact if you need extra support, information, advice or guidance.
There are various activities that take place during evenings and weekends, including quiz nights, bingo, sports clubs and movie nights. We also visit theme parks, go shopping, visit local cinemas as well as going on weekend trips away.
What the students say
Being a residential student has really helped me to become more independent – I do my own washing and I can cook with a bit of help from staff.
