In this level, the learners are introduced to the basics in vocational programmes such as knitting, weaving, embroidery art and other creative art work. The learners are also taken through basic academic skills such as a number work, simple language skills and other social skills.
The teachers at this level are keen to observe the capability of the learners so as to recognize their interest areas in for the next level.
The progress to the next level (Vocational training) will depend highly on the performance of the learners at this level. Due to the handicapping conditions of some of the learners, it is impossible for them to continue with training at the institution and thus this remains their exit stage at the school.
