The Course

Our Skills for Employment pathway provides a good introduction to the world of work. Students can tailor make their course to include areas of interest that they may wish to progress into at a later date. These may include drama, art, construction, ICT, sport and hair & beauty. Students will also continue to study English and maths. All students are given the opportunity to take part in internal and external placements in an area of their choice.

When you apply to the College our expert team will discuss the different pathways with you and conduct a starting point diagnostic assessment so you can be enrolled on the right level and course for you. You may be able to start on the Skills for Employment pathway or you may be advised to begin with the Skills for Independent Living pathway. Whatever your starting point we will help you to find the right course for you. 

As you progress through the levels of the Skills for Employment pathway you will gain many skills and experiences, which could include a mainstream college course, employment or volunteering. The course has a keen focus on work experience whilst allowing students to develop their independence and maturity. Students will practice their interview skills, create a CV and learn to write application letters and forms as well as gaining an understanding of body language and communication skills. and progress to a Supported Internship of a vocational course at the College.

For students with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) that have successfully completed the Skills for Employment pathway, there may be the opportunity to progress to a Supported Internship, which is a bespoke work-based study programme based on a student’s individual careers aspirations. It usually lasts for one year and includes an extended work placement that lasts for at least six months. You’ll take the first step from education into the workplace while gaining the skills you need to get a paid job. Additionally, you may also progress to a mainstream vocational course at the College.
