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

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.

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.

Three and a half days per week.
