Overview

The Employability Pathway offers learners the chance to work in real-life working environments and further their vocational knowledge with the aspiration of gaining supported, voluntary or paid employment. Placements are supported with job coaches who will help the learners to become independent and work at industry standards.  Alongside their work placements, learners will have the chance to achieve their maths, English, ICT and other relevant vocational qualifications that they wish to complete within a classroom or vocational setting.

What to expect (The Experience)

Learners access an individualised curriculum to reflect their needs and aspirations in relation to work. Learners will be assessed as wanting to work and have an idea about what vocation they would like to work within. Working with a dedicated job coach, learners are supported to master employability skills and improve general work readiness skills which can then be transferable throughout all aspects of the learner’s life. Within the learner’s college day if the learner chooses to have one, they will have the chance to be with their peer group and work on a range of qualifications including functional skills and vocational qualifications.
