COURSE INFORMATION

This is a two-year supported college course primarily aimed at school leavers with additional support needs who have already completed a School College Partnership course, such as New Directions, in the final year of their school education.

It gives the opportunity to build confidence and develop social and work skills appropriate to an employment setting. The provision is contextualised to incorporate the Essential Skills identified within the Curriculum for Excellence framework and offers a broad variety of vocational areas enabling you to make more informed choices on your future vocational/Further Education pathway.

In year 2, you will build on the skills, knowledge and level of achievement gained in year 1 and, if appropriate, will be given the opportunity to participate in a work placement. Work experience is both set up and coordinated by our work placement coordinator.
