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

You will make use of your skills to carry out structured tasks and activities in familiar contexts with appropriate guidance when you need it.

We currently teach four pathways which include Hospitality & Retail, Craft, Design & Technology, Land Based and a top-up Diploma year.
