Pathway to employment
Pathway to employment is part of a wider educational package, which aims to equip learners with moderate learning difficulties to take the first step towards gaining employment through undertaking work experience.
Learners will be supported by learning mentors who are readily available to offer ongoing support in the transition from college to employment. Alongside classroom-based careers coaching and enterprise, our learning mentors will develop individualised employability skills including Employability for Life and Talentino!
Our Talentino! Programme aims to improve the personal, social, educational and economic outcomes for young people with learning difficulties.
Students will have the opportunity to attend a work placement on one to three days per week with the remainder of the week studying vocational programmes, such as BTEC qualifications, as well as working towards qualifications in English and Maths.
We believe work experience offers our young adults:
- Practical experience in an industry they wish to work in
- Improved employment opportunities
- Experience of teamwork and development of interpersonal skills
- Better educational outcomes
Our hope is that all our learners will progress into paid employment, apprenticeships or supported internships.
