The Vocational Pathway offers two courses for people who have decided to pursue employment when they leave education and who have demonstrated that employment is a realistic option for them. Students applying for this course have shown the potential to gain employment with support from job coaches and bespoke training.
Across both courses, students will attend two days of classroom-based learning; focusing on Functional Maths and English, PSHEC, Independent Living Skills and Employability skills and two days of work based learning, which are supported by specialist teachers, instructors and job coaches.
Vocational Options is a two year course designed for young people who have not yet decided which type of employment they wish to pursue and would like to explore different options. Students on this course have the opportunity to explore four possible career paths: Cafe and Retail, Catering, Facilities Management and Horticulture.
Vocational Training is a two year course designed for young people who have decided which career path they wish to pursue. Students will choose to focus their training on either Facilities, Horticulture, Hospitality or Catering, and will attend an extended work placement in their chosen vocational area in order to develop the specific skills required to gain employment.
