This is an exciting new college course that is being jointly delivered by The Better Lives Partnership, Bridge to Employment Project (B2E@Wigtownshire) and Dumfries and Galloway College - Stranraer Campus.
This course could be for you if you feel you would benefit from having a supported learning environment to gain necessary knowledge and skills to help you prepare for the world of work.
If you want an environment that will help you realise what your key strengths are, support you in identifying and developing aspects that you need and want to progress to a supported employment programme, or directly into employment, then this course could be for you.
You will develop your confidence, personal and employability skills in a supported environment. Through a variety of subjects, you will be given support to design your own personal learning and support plan to meet your personal needs and aspirations.
You may have the opportunity to participate in a work experience placement within the college or in a local supported employment setting. This course offers you a great way to develop your skills and abilities towards supported employment or volunteering.
This course will be suitable for you if you are:
- A school leaver or progressing college student whose next steps are to develop skills for the world of work.
- An adult who has already left school and wishes to return to education on an employment pathway.
You must be able to demonstrate your ability to work at this level, independently and with others.
