What is covered
This course is designed to prepare young people with additional needs for employment. Students spend 1–2 days per week at college and 2–3 days per week on an unpaid work placement.
Our Supported Employment Advisors will spend time with you and learn about your interests, skills and abilities. From this, they will then decide what kind of workplace will be best suited for you.
You will be supported by a job coach throughout the duration of the course who will support you within the workplace until you feel ready to go to work on your own. Job coaches can also provide support for things like travel training, budgeting, and life skills. You will learn lots of new skills which will help you find paid employment at the end of the course.
When you join the course you will have a bespoke package created for you depending on what qualifications you want to achieve. You will have the opportunity to achieve your English and Maths qualifications and an additional Employability qualification which is offered alongside our course.
What can this course lead to
