Is this course right for me?

This course is designed for learners want to develop confidence in their work skills and/or their ICT skills. It is for learners who have left full time education and need to maintain skills both in employability and IT. This programme helps students with SEND develop skills for life and work. If learners need support to access college they need to provide their own PA to attend classes and support them throughout their college day.

Course Overview

The learners will be taught by a Pathways Tutor and will run our coffee shop that is open to everyone in the college. They will be working on employability skills within a real working environment. Learners will also have access to computers where they can work on their ICT skills. Progress will be monitored and recorded using RARPA processes

Classes run on Mondays from 9 until 4 pm with an hour for lunch.

What options are there after completing this course?

We will work closely with the learners and their circle of support, to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to progress onto another part time course within the college or access other agencies. Learners may choose to use their newly learnt skills at home, in a job or to take part in activities within the local community.

Additional information

Coming to College is a full time commitment and you will need to ensure that you have factored in the cost of travelling to College and potentially to a local work placement. If you are concerned about this, please click here to see what financial support is available through our Student Services team.

We do recommend a few good resources that you can choose to purchase if you wish which you can see here (link). We may request contributions are made to trips and outings.
