We believe that every student should have the best learning opportunities possible.
A course designed to support young people with Education Healthcare Plans (EHCPs) to move from college in to paid employment. Students are placed in work which matches their skills and aspirations.
This is unpaid work but with the aim for the role to lead to paid employment. Alongside their time at work, students complete a personalised study programme studying English, maths and an employment focused qualification. Students will spend three or four days with the employer (full-time hours or part time hours per day, this will be agreed at initial employer meeting) one day at college with a designated personal tutor.
The students will have support with their college work by a trained and experienced learning support assistant. The students will have access to a job coach who will support the student and the employer. The job coach will be funded through Access to Work funding.
