  • In to Work

About the course

The In to Work course is for learners who are looking to move into employment and wish to develop their confidence and skills in order to support their chosen career pathway. The main aim of the programme is to support, prepare and build employability skills ready for the workplace and where possible move into paid employment.

Initially students attend College 3 days per week and engage in session including, Employment Project, Independent Skills and Tutorials on specific subjects, relevant to the Learner’s progression. 

We work in partnership with Local and National organisations, Parents and Carers and the learner to highlight areas of interest and identify suitable placements or Supported Internships. Once a placement is sourced learners are supported by an Employment Coach to assist with the transition into the workplace. 

The Employment Coaches monitor their progress and allow them to develop in the role until they no longer require support and can perform the role independently and with confidence. When placements are confirmed learners will then increase their working week depending on the needs of the Employer and the role. This is a very supportive course for those who are ready to take the first steps into employment.
