About the course
The Links to Work course is typically a follow up path after our students have completed the Towards Independence and Work programme. This course aims to prepare students for future paid employment, developing working skills and independent living and working towards a Supported Internship as part of our Into Work programme. It aims to build up students' confidence and abilities to continue their training towards a professional life. The course involves practicing interview skills, participating in varied work experience, and completing CV's all to help them progress into the working world. Learners also continue working on their Maths and English skills in order to once again prepare them for employment, as well as taking part in activities to support their own health and wellbeing.
