What opportunities will this course give me?

For students who wish to continue on to access the world of work, Skills for Supported Employment or a Supported Internship are possible next steps. Learners will work closely with the Supported Internship team and tutors to develop own career goals and identify future placements.

What will I be learning?

This is a one year programme for learners with moderate learning disabilities/difficulties who are looking to seek employment in the near future. Learners will be working at Level 1 as a general reflection of their ability and prior experience.

The programme is designed to prepare learners for going into supported employment and will focus on relevant skills, behaviours and attitudes required for the work place while maintaining the development of English, maths, personal and social skills. A bespoke curriculum offers individualised targets in Employment, Independent Living Skills, Community, Friends and Relationships and Good Health.

The programme will cover the following topics:
Interview Skills,
Personal Presentation,
CV writing,
Time Management
Oral Presentation Skills,
Job Seeking,
Work Experience
Volunteering and Community Projects
Enterprise Skills

Embedded within this programme will be the development of professional relationships, appropriate conduct at work, problem solving, customer care, understanding roles and responsibilities. Learners will be encouraged to develop their skills for the workplace and to seek work experience/voluntary work to support their time in College. They will attend College three days a week and on the days they are not at College, there is an expectation that at least one day will be in voluntary work or another form of work experience. Tutors will be able to offer guidance with this.

Why is this course for me?

Learners will be assessed as the programme progresses and they will build up a portfolio of evidence. All assessment will take place in class at the appropriate time.

What do I need to sign up?
