Course Overview

Interested in exciting courses, designed for young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities to develop personal and work-related skills?

Our Supported Employment study programme gives you the opportunity to learn a variety of new skills, build your confidence, help to improve your English and maths and ultimately become more independent. This will then enable you to progress into further learning or supported employment activities, where you could be helping someone else perform their job, or even, under supervision, progressing to a job of your own.

Our tutors and work placement officers on the Supported Employment pathway are all highly experienced and will provide you with a wide range of stimulating, educational and enjoyable activities, both in and out of the classroom, all focussed on developing your opportunities to get into supported employment.

You will have endless opportunities to build your existing skills and develop new ones and, with our guidance and support, you will grow in self-confidence and achieve your goals.

Course Structure

Your Programme of Study will also include: health, safety, well-being and employability, mathematics, English, physical activity, enrichment and tutorials.

Entry Requirements

You should be working at a minimum of Entry Level 1.

This course is suitable for those with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.

English and/or Mathematics will be included in your timetable if you have not achieved a GCSE at Grade A*-C in these subjects when you commence your course.

How Will I Learn?

You will carry out simple, familiar tasks and activities with guidance and support from your tutor or assessor.


At Entry Level 2 it is possible to ‘blend’ your learning across Entry Level 1 and Entry Level 3 if you have a profile where the levels of your academic, emotional and social skills vary.
