where will it take me?
Preparation for Employment - Following a successful programme of vocational tasters and preparation for employment skills, you will be ready for paid employment. You may also decide to progress to a Vocational Course at Level 2 if you have achieved the necessary entry requirement.
Preparation for Adulthood - Your course will focus on developing the skills you will need when you move on from college. Staff will support you in transitioning from college onto your desired outcome, determined in your Education Health Care Plan.
Preparation for Independence & Employment - You will have developed the skills required to gain supported or paid employment within your local community. The focus on independent living skills will enable you to live in and engage with your community with or without support. You may also wish to explore further opportunities provided by Adult Social Care.
