For young adults aged 16-24 who want to further develop independent living and work skills.

  • developing healthy relationships and respect
  • personal care and hygiene
  • managing money
  • eating out
  • household cleaning
  • everyday food and drink preparation
  • making a simple meal
  • introduction to career preparation.

You will develop employability skills, knowledge and attitudes that will see you working with real employers in the workplace. Your timetable will include qualification unit work, work experience, digital skills, English, maths and enrichment. All sessions will help you develop employability skills and gain confidence. You will also have access to a wide range of enrichment activities, including hair & beauty, art, drama, dance and sport. These activities will help you develop team, interpersonal and creative skills.

No formal entry requirements are required, though realistic learning targets would need to be agreed.

Three and a half days per week.

This course combines both theory and practical sessions and you will be assessed in a variety of ways (activity, group work, photographic and video) which will be presented through a portfolio of evidence.

All our courses are planned around your individual learning needs, with a timetable that clearly identifies the sessions that will be taught. You will be assigned a Programme Lead who will support you throughout your time in College. Teaching staff will work closely with you to help you achieve planned learning goals. Our staff are experienced at delivering classes to meet your needs and will work with you to build your confidence and skills. Our learning centres are equipped with modern resources that will support you to achieve positive outcomes.

School Leavers under the age of 19 do not have to pay fees on any full time courses, though may have to pay for their second year if turning 19 during their studies. If you’re aged 19 or over you might qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan. It’s easy to apply for and you won’t have to pay anything back until you’re earning over £25,000. If you are studying a part-time course and you receive one of the following benefits, or you depend financially on someone who does, you may be entitled to have your tuition fees waived: Job Seekers Allowance, Income Support. You will, however, have to pay any awarding body/assessment fees (unless you are on a first full level 2 course). * If you are in receipt of Working Tax Credit or receive other allowances, you may be eligible to claim concessionary rates. If you are entitled to a fee concession you will be asked to provide proof of your entitlement. It is essential that you inform us if your entitlement changes at any time during your course.

You could move on to Progress to Employment or SAIL Extended.
