Course overview

Our Skills for Work courses introduce students to the world of work, as well as increase their confidence and social skills.

Course information

Students learn within our Foundation and Inclusive learning department. The curriculum has been designed to give students the best start before going into the world of work, with Maths and English also focused on in the course.

Skills learnt through this course include:

  • Confidence
  • Speaking to audiences
  • Communication
  • Teamwork
  • Maths
  • English

Students also undertake a work experience placement one or two days per week, which will either be based in college or in the local community. Once a term we set new individualised targets to monitor and review students’ progress in these areas.
