LEARNING FOR WORK (Partnership between Youth Connect South West and Bath College)
Learning for work is a course for young people with an Education Health and Care Plan who would like to gain skills and experience for work but cannot do a mainstream college course. The course is aimed at young people who are 16-25, often with a profile of social emotional, mental health needs/high anxiety.
The programme is designed with a person-centred approach to raise the aspirations for the young people so that they are ready to reengage in education or start their working life.
It is tailored to meet the needs of each individual young person but we have a standard offer which includes:
¨ On-going 1:1 support from a Key Worker and engagement activities to suit the young person’s interests i.e. pool, craft, outings, sport, cookery.
¨ Accredited Maths and English sessions delivered in a community setting or at college
¨ Support to find and attend work experience and volunteering opportunities
¨ Help getting forms of identification if needed, (birth certificate, provisional driving licence, NI number), setting up a bank account, creating an email account etc.
¨ Practical activity taster days and music and craft sessions
¨ Gym/fitness sessions
¨ Chance to gain additional qualifications such as First Aid, Food Hygiene, Driving Theory test, CSCS card.
¨ Intensive support to gain employment or move onto further training or an Apprenticeship.
NB Applications for the course can only be made by a referral from either Youth Connect South West or the Youth Offending Service in B&NES and then the SEND ‘consult’ process by which the LA places learners at college.
