City & Guilds (5546) Award & Certificate in Employability Skills Entry Level 2

OCNWM Award, Certificate & Diploma in Employability & Development Skills Entry Level 3 and Level 1

Course information

This is our dedicated transition year, where all final year students develop their work skills and are supported in undertaking individual work placements with the aim of gaining paid employment.

Working alongside our Work Based Learning Team, students are supported in placements which, where possible, relate directly to the vocational pathway they have studied. A job coach works alongside students until they feel confident to work alone with the supervision of co-workers. To ensure that work is sustainable, we train students to travel independently. Some of this year’s placements include No More Kennels, Toast, Bentley Motors and Macclesfield Town Football Club.

The Employability qualification includes the vital understanding to back up these practical work skills, including teamwork, applying for jobs, interview skills, personal presentation and work / life balance.

All students, whatever vocational pathway they take, will have individualised Functional Skills sessions (Maths & English) and undertake qualifications whenever possible. They also have weekly Life Skills sessions to develop independence and enrichment, where they choose from a range of leisure clubs.
