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.
