Course Details

A personalised programme around Enterprise with a focus on individual preparation for the future beyond college. Development of employability skills whilst continuing to improve Maths and English skills and a learning environment that supports students to explore what job suits them best.

There is a focus on employability skills but these will be general; for example working with others, working to meet an agreed outcome and deadline, problem solving, customer service, decision making and above all communicating with others. All of these skills are transferable to situations within the world of work.

Assessment is informal and ongoing. There is a possibility that students will take qualifications in Functional Skills in Maths and English. Assessment will take the form of a short test.

Entry requirements

No formal entry requirements. The course is for students who are preparing for employment and are new to college and need to gain confidence and practical skills to progress into the world of work. Interview required.
