Rehabilitation kitchen

Our rehabilitation kitchen gives you the chance to learn in a supported learning environment. Full of specialist equipment, you’ll have everything you need to master your practical skills.

Practise skills that make a difference to people’s lives

Our purpose-built, rehabilitation kitchen gives you the opportunity to learn practical skills in a supported learning environment. It is an adapted living area that replicates the space that future patients may be situated in - giving you valuable experience of working in these settings.

You’ll use a variety of equipment and appliances adapted to suit those who have a range of physical or mental health needs. You will apply the theory you have learnt in the classroom into a practical setting to build a range of skills that will help people perform everyday tasks.

Benefits to you:

  • Build your confidence in using specialist equipment
  • Learn practical skills before going out onto placement or into graduate roles
  • Learn interpersonal skills by practising with fellow students
  • Put theory into practice and understand how you can help people overcome barriers to their everyday life
